I love keto lunch ideas!
Check out this healthy Shrimp and Avocado salad recipe – it’s anything but boring! The fresh lime and cilantro dressing make it super flavorful and delicious.
Salads for lunch are so easy to customize with veggies and add-ins. This simple dressing is very yummy and can also be customized by seasoning to taste. Next time I may add some cumin or Sriracha for spice! Yum.
Hip Tip: If you have the time, marinate the shrimp and veggies ahead of time with the dressing for maximum flavor.

I love this salad!
It’s such an easy and satisfying meal! This would be a great lunch idea to prep ahead and take to work during the week. If you do pack ahead, separate the marinated veggies/shrimp mixture and lettuce so the salad lasts longer.
