One of the easiest summer lunches or meals on the go are sandwiches. This Summer I’ve been looking for ways to eat healthier and remove the bread element from standard recipes. This recipe is such a winner.
Prepare yourself for a way satisfying meal that’s both incredibly easy, quick, no hassle and refreshing.
It’s crunchy, fresh, and has a stunning presentation. Not a shrimp fan? Substitute for any meat you like. Or – add another veggie or two of your choice and suddenly you have a delicious vegan option. If you want a protein packed version, add avocado and lentils.
