This Spicy Thai Shrimp Salad has warm, gingery shrimp, a spicy chili-lime vinaigrette and a rich peanut sauce over crisp romaine, edamame and veggies. It’s 21 Day Fix and Weight Watchers friendly, and a great change-up from your regular lunch salad!
This Applebee’s copycat was only my second recipe on the blog (6 years ago!!) and was ready for an update! I’ve got some new prettier pictures for you and I tweaked the recipe a bit while I was at it 🙂 It’s better than ever and I hope you guys love it!!
Ahh, salad. It’s the word that potential “dieters” dread most, isn’t it? The word that is used to talk oneself out of eating well, as in “I REALLY need to lose a few pounds, but I just can’t take eating salad every day!”
Of course, this is said with the puckered face of the truly disgusted and/or truly terrified. I totally get it – and I want to help you get over it. (Also, you do NOT need to eat salad every day to lose weight, but I digress…)
That being said, many fixers and other healthy eaters (myself included) find it simplest when planning out their day to have a salad for lunch, especially this time of year and it’s so easy to get stuck in a salad rut!
Such was the position I found myself in when I decided to work on a 21 Day Fix version of one of my favorite restaurant salads, the Applebee’s Thai Shrimp Salad.
