This simple shrimp salad looks exactly like something that would be on the menu at a fancy detox spa, right? But you can make it at home in a couple of minutes, with just a few ingredients.
The most interesting among them is hearts of palm, crunchy vegetables harvested from the center of the cabbage palm tree.
They look a lot like white asparagus, but their flavor is milder, so you can throw them in salads with lots of different flavor profiles. They’re also a great source of fiber, iron, and potassium.
Once you get a taste of them in this dish, you may want to start throwing them in all kind of other meals.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Shrimp is a low-calorie source of protein and is also loaded with selenium. Here, it’s perfectly balanced with nutrient-dense spinach and hearts of palm and healthy fats from avocado. The flavors are so fresh all you need to dress it is a little lemon and sea salt.
