One of the things I love about summer is the ability to throw together a dinner salad in no time at all. That’s just what I had to do a few nights ago when a day of errands and shopping turned into, “Now what’s for dinner?”. It would have been easy to pick up something on the way home but with all our travel, birthday celebrations and summer entertainment lined up, I like to save calories where I can.

This salad is everything. Kale from the garden, paired with fresh roasted corn, shrimp and avocados came together so nicely.

Oh, and this salad is a “dump and toss”. So take a look at the ingredient list and then put in the desired quantities as you please.  Don’t worry, you can do it. It’s hard to mess this up.

Just please, please whatever you do…don’t overcook the shrimp.
