Shrimp Avocado Mango Salad
This shrimp avocado mango salad was my light lunch. I have been replacing one meal a day with slightly lower carb meals like this, for weight loss :P Instead of having this as a light meal or a snack, it can be eaten as a side salad with other main dishes. If you fancy something more filling, you can check out my mango salsa pasta recipe.

Gather and prepare the ingredients. As a short-cut, I used store-bought cooked shrimps which is a huge time saver in this recipe. Prepare and cut mango, avocado, cherry tomato, red onion, coriander and hot chilli.
Salad Dressing. I’m keeping the dressing as simple and healthy as possible. So it’s just extra-virgin olive oil, zest and juice of half a Thai lime, and some apple cider vinegar. Since I am incorporating more salads in my diet for weight loss, I’d rather gain weight from the natural goodness of sweet mango (my fave fruit!), than to eat a calorie-laden dressing.
ASSEMBLE THE SALAD
Add all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Then pour salad dressing over the contents.
Toss and plate it in a salad dish. Garnish with a lime wedge and some freshly cracked pepper. This salad is so refreshing!
