I don’t know about you, but I love quick & refreshing salads.

Bonus points if that salad can double as an easy make ahead lunch or quick weeknight dinner.

Sometimes the wellness world can make meal prep look & feel overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing thing.

A little simple food prep – even if it’s just taking care of lunch for a few days – can go a long way on busy weeks.

Meal Prep Tips & How to Store It

  • You can make the shrimp salad ahead and keep it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days

Tip: wait to slice the avocado until just before serving so they stay nice & fresh (this way the halves don’t turn brown in the fridge)

Recipe Notes, Modifications & Adaptations 

  • I used 31/40 shrimp, but any size will work
  • Can use bay shrimp instead (or even a drained, canned fish like tuna or salmon)
  • Full fat, plain Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise 
  • Add other fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, basil or some microgreens
  • Use red onion in place of shallot
