It's all about the light and fresh flavors for summer, and this shrimp and sun-dried tomatoes summer salad is no exception!
It’s so easy to put together, but you want to use high quality jumbo shrimp and crispy puntarelle chicory…that’s what sets it apart from just another salad!

And the rest is just sun-dried tomatoes and elements of the marinade. The mix of the orange and EVO oil gives it a fresh vibe, and the taste is soft, for picky eaters, too.
The salad is low-carb, high-protein and medium in effort…actually it’s quite possibly my easiest effortless salad…so no excuses!
