Green Goddess Chili Shrimp Salad

Green Goddess Chili Shrimp Salad

The beautiful thing about a salad is there are so many variations. If you continue to switch it up, eating salads should never get old. I’ll admit, life is busy, and I often get in a salad rut because I just grab the usual salad toppings as I’m dashing through the store. After a ten to twelve hour day at the office, I don’t always feel like planning my meals, I don’t feel like cooking, and I just want good ol’ taste good comfort food.

You might never think that a healthy salad can be comfort food, and I’m not talking sugar-sweetened meat or loaded with creamy ranch dressing type of salads. Healthy comfort food is rich in flavor and filling, and leaves you satisfied without leading to regret over what you ate.

This Green Goddess Chili Shrimp is my favorite salad to make for lunch lately. It’s easy to make, super flavorful, and full of healthy goodness.Β It’s packed with so many nutrients from all the greens.

Ryan and I usually make our own salad dressings just to avoid the unnecessary added sugar in our diets. I used to spend hours going through the dressings to find one without sugar in any of its hidden forms, and then we discovered Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess Dressing. Β It is now one of our favorite dressing because it’s just so darn good. It has such a unique flavor that is light and dress. It’s one of those dressings that could go over almost any salad and be wonderful.

Trust me friends, you’ll love it!

    Ooooh yummy! Happening tonight! I’m with you on “no bottled dressings” but was thrilled to see that I can buy Tessamae’s where I usually shop. The one bottled dressing that I DO buy, however, is Girard’s Light Champagne, which is fabulous on Waldorf Salad. Thanks again for this big bowl of gorgeousness.
