I’m loving every last bite of this salad, this is the kind of food I like the most. When I think of salads, I imagine a bowl full of veggies with grains or crunchy nuts. Like this colorful salad with lots of vegetables, shrimps, cashews and sliced avocado. I finished it off with a sprinkle of tahini dressing. It’s the perfect salad to eat as a light meal, an afternoon snack or a healthy dinner. Anyway, the salad is just great and I hope it will become your new favorite.
