SimpleChef: Quinoa Shrimp Salad

There were a lot of great comments on  the “Best of Clean Eating” book for Valentine’s giveaway . One comment from Leah requested recipes that can be done on a budget. Well you’ve asked, and I have the answer. I was soooo hungry on Monday when I got home from a very busy day and just wanted to eat something light. I had the ingredients in the fridge and quickly put together a veggie shrimp salad. The ingredients are easy to find and do not cost that much. So Leah here it is.

For the Quinoa Shrimp salad you will need:

  • 1 small zucchini cut in half-moon shape
  • 4 ounces of cucumber cut in half-moon shape
  • 1/4 cup of cooked quinoa ( You can also substitute the quinoa with cooked brown rice)
  • 4 ounces of pre-cooked shrimp (you can find in any grocery store in the frozen section)
  • 1 small tomato cut
  • 3 ounces of diced red pepper
  • 2 tbsp of fat-free balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Step 1: Start by boiling 1/4 cup of water and steam the zucchini in there for 3 minutes.

Step 2: Transfer all the veggies into a salad bowl and top it with the shrimp and quinoa.  Add the fat-free dressing of your choice and

Voila!

 

Enjoy and spread the love…
