I believe this COULD be grain free/paleo ... just need to swap out the soy sauce for coconut amino's (and well, I've not gone there because I LOVE my soy sauce that I use).
Original recipe found on Pinterest (of course) and slightly modified for our taste.
I knew the minute I added the diced avocado and mango that Hubby wasn't going to be in love with it, but Princess and I devoured it, therefore, a HIT and keeper for us, but only for the girls ...
Easy enough to do, and surprisingly, I pretty much eyeballed the dressing measurements as I was chatting with Princess while I made it and we were laughing ... a very fun moment was had between the two of us. Can I tell you what a relief it is that she grew into a fine young lady after those rough years we had? Makes me love her even more than I already do ...
Ok, back to the recipe ...
1 bag of coleslaw mix ... the one with carrots and such in it
1 lb of cooked shrimp, if larger, cut in half or bite size (I think next time I'll rough chop them), remove them pesky tails
1 avocado, diced
1 mango, diced
6 radishes, sliced thin and cut in half
2 green onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup of sliced almonds
for the dressing you will need:
3 tbs soy sauce (or coconut amino's)
2 tbs rice wine vinegar
juice from 1 lime
2 tbs honey
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce (I used the chili paste I have on hand and definitely wanted more)
1 fresh ginger, minced (I used the ginger paste I have and could have used more)
1/2 cup olive oil
First up, mix up your dressing by adding everything in a bowl and whisk in the oil. Alternatively, just dump all in a jar with tight fitting lid and shake it like you mean it. Set aside.
Toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine all.
Refrigerate for about an hour and then dish it up. I had this for lunch the next day and it was DELICIOUS.
