Seafood & Asparagus Salad

Healthy Living, Recipes

Fresh herbs can sometimes have distinct flavors but overall, they provide antioxidants and can also aid in blood sugar control. 

By calling for shrimp as one of the main ingredients, this recipe puts an interesting spin on your summer menu. Shrimp provides plenty of protein with minimal calories, along with high amounts of selenium and vitamin B12. Enjoy!
