We have been trying to eat a little healthier with our family lately. But eating the same old salad get boring and makes it harder to keep up with healthy eating. So it was time to try something new. This happens to be a simple and delicious salad with a homemade dressing that was created with what we had one day and it worked, hubby loved it. Spinach, avocado, cherry tomatoes and shrimp create a wonderful combination of flavors. The simple dressing is so quick and delicious.  (If you don’t like the taste of garlic use 1/2 of a clove.) Enjoy.
