Spinach & Shrimp Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

I have come to debunk the common myth that salads are sad dish choices. Salads can be delicious and exciting — I promise you! And this spinach salad with seared garlic shrimp, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cannellini beans and a cilantro garlic lime dressing, is a prime example of a salad that’s anything but sad. This salad is happy and exciting.

If you are allergic to shellfish or don’t like seafood, you can skip the protein, or sub with a protein of your choice. The magic with this recipe is really the dressing — it’s refreshing and makes your mouth water even more with every bite. I will eat spinach everyday if it is covered in this dressing. No problem.

Fun fact: you don’t necessarily need to have vinegar in a dressing to make it a vinaigrette. It’s really any dressing that contains an acid. Limes are acidic and lemons are acidic, so even if there is no vinegar, you can still feel fancy and call this a vinaigrette if you want. 🙂
