Shrimp Fajita Salad (Keto, Paleo, Whole30, Vegetarian)

Yum! Check out this shrimp fajita salad recipe!

I love to read and develop recipes, I’m always surfing the internet looking at recipe sites and blogs and saving recipes to try later. I also watch a lot of cooking shows and always take notes. Everything is an inspiration for a new kitchen experiment!

Most of the time I find recipes that are not low carb, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free…but I can make them that way. This is one of those recipes. I stumbled across a beautiful looking recipe for shrimp fajitas on a great blog that I frequent and decided that they looked so scrumptious I had to try to make them “Heather safe”.

Shop Non-Toxic Skillets on Amazon! (AFFILIATE LINKS)

I succeeded by ditching the tortillas and making this into a salad. Perfect for topping with whatever you want. This made for the most delightful summer lunch! So light and refreshing, but still full of flavor and quite filling.

I think this would be great with any kind of marinated protein. I could definitely get into a chicken or steak version.

You can also add more heat if you like it spicy. Just add some chili flakes or your favorite hot sauce.

I didn’t even think to make some fresh guacamole or salsa when I made this, but I think that would also be a great addition!

I hope you try this shrimp fajita salad recipe! If you do, please come back and let me know what you think.
