This Paleo shrimp salad recipe makes a fantastic quick dinner when you are pressed for time. I’ve been following the Paleo diet for a few weeks now and one of the hardest things I’m having to adjust to is the absence of pasta. Normally, pasta is my ingredient of choice when I am rushed for time. Of course, there is no pasta allowed on the Paleo diet so I had to start thinking outside of the box. Since I cannot have a traditional shrimp pasta salad on the Paleo diet, I decided to see if I could come up with a Paleo shrimp salad recipe instead.
Paleo Shrimp Salad Recipe
Normally, in the summer, I would load up on pasta salad. But, since pasta isn’t allowed on the Paleo diet, I decided to make the base of this salad vegetables instead. That makes it much lower in carbs and acceptable for someone following the Paleo diet. There are Paleo kinds of pasta available but I honestly haven’t found any that I really like yet. If you want to experiment and find one you do like, please let me know.
You are going to love this healthy summer paleo shrimp salad recipe.
