All the ingredients for this power salad can conveniently be picked up right in your local Hannaford's grocery store. They carry a vast array healthful options, at reasonable prices. I love that they also run free nutrition demos & classes right in store. Education and ease of procurement are so important when trying to learn how to create nourishing meals for our families.
The ingredient that truly makes this such an easy salad entree to prepare is SeaPak Marinated Shrimp (first box pictured) part of their new Lighthouse Selections seafood line-up. Each serving packs 20 grams of lean protein, and the shrimp is raised in BAP certified sustainable aquaculture farms. The marinade on the shrimp is flavorful and lightly spicy, making it a perfect pair for the creamy hummus dressing.
