Eating one salad won't make you healthy, just as eating one dessert won't make you fat. But by consistently adding more whole foods like lean protein, fruits, and veggies to your diet, it can make a big difference!
Fresh and tangy grilled shrimp salad is perfect for summer or anytime. Jicama is root vegetable which is low in calories and high in fiber & vitamin C. It's refreshing, crisp, and can be eaten raw, like in this salad!
