As more individuals become health-focused, they are making better choices about the foods they consume. However, conscious eating doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or belly warming comfort foods. Lemon Garlic Shrimp Salad is a prime example.
Lemon Garlic Shrimp Salad is a healthier version of classic comfort food using plain yogurt, celery, carrots, chives, dill and spices on a buttery brioche roll.
Lemon Garlic Shrimp Salad uses all-natural Tessemae’s Lemon Garlic Dressing, Marinade and Dip to enhance the flavor of a classic Shrimp Salad. Tessemae’s products are gluten, dairy and sugar free, non-GMO and vegan.
Olive based, all their products use only real ingredients to achieve their mission of providing simple, yet delicious food to consumers. The benefits of eating clean are improved metabolism, immunity and vitality, among many other things.
My Lemon Garlic Shrimp Salad keeps with the commitment to provide healthy and tasty food. Served on homemade brioche, the base uses plain organic yogurt, minced veggies and herbs along with additional lemon zest and garlic to elevate the light and crisp flavors of Tessemae’s Garlic Lemon Dressing.
I served mine alongside a spring mix salad with Tessemae’s Balsamic Vinaigrette for a complete meal. If you like using Tessemae’s products, also check out my Ancho Citrus Salmon Salad using Southwest Ranch Dressing!
