Simple Edamame and Shrimp Salad

Ever since making a mental note to myself to eat at least one salad a week; I’ve been thinking of ways to make salads more fun and of course pretty on the eyes.

Today, I’m sharing an easy salad recipe that I made this week. If you are a shrimp lover, listen up! You won’t be disappointed.

Simple Edamame and Shrimp Salad

This salad consists of only three ingredients: lettuce, edamame, and shrimp. When it comes to this salad, less is definitely more.

Free feel to substitute cilantro with any herbs of choice. I would do basil, mint, or thyme.

I think any dressing would do but I tossed mine with a slightly creamy caesar salad dressing. Hope you’ll give this a try.
