Paleo Shrimp and Avocado Salad

As the weather warms into Spring, so do my tastebuds! This light paleo shrimp and avocado salad mixes the two ingredients of its namesake, and tops it off with a zesty salad dressing that you can make yourself! You’ll love the kick that the lime juice adds to the salad dressing and how truly easy it is to whisk up. Be sure to think ahead before you prepare this dish and let the shrimp thaw in the fridge overnight. If you do forget to plan ahead, you may simply let the shrimp thaw in a bag of cold water in the sink. Either way, you’ll love the way the flavors in this recipe complement each other and work to make a truly unique Paleo dinner!
