The salad bar at a local grocery store is easily my quick and healthy lunch on the weekends. This said grocery store also has a decent seafood selection with steamed shrimp made to order. It’s convenient and always hits the spot. Salad bars always remind me how much I love peas in my salad. It’s one of my favorite toppings and I always freaken forget about it. I even keep peas in my freezer at all times. 

Several of you have been asking for recipe of the salad I’ve been posting on social media. It is super easy! The salad is simply just ingredients I tossed together in a bowl that made a delicious combination. Shrimp, peas and eggs are one of my favorite conversations. Remember my Shrimp & Egg Salad? It’s filled with lots of different textures and pops of flavors, it’s easy to not get bored with it.

Don’t feel limited to only these toppings. Carrots, cucumbers and any other vegetable would also be a great addition. Get creative and let me know if you find a new topping that makes this salad.
