I know this is nothing close to a slow cooker recipe, but I go through these phases where I just want to devour a salad every day. And I sort of figured that you guys might like to change things up once in a while too. Especially after taking down the pan of cookie bars from earlier this week. Plus this is a super quick fix kind of dinner so it’s great for a night when you want something fresh and delicious and don’t have a lot of time.
This makes about a dinner sized salad for two. Or you could make up all the components of the salad and keep them ready for lunches all week.The fixings are pretty simple here. Some crisp and fresh romaine lettuce. Sweet corn. Juicy tomatoes. Spicy shrimp and creamy avocado. It’s that easy but so fresh and tasty.
Everything gets topped of with the best, creamiest homemade Zesty Lime Jalapeno Ranch Dressing. An easy, fresh and satisfying dinner for those wanna eat light kinda nights!
