Yummy Salad

As part of PowerCakes #PowerMealAWeek, I’m sharing my version of a Palm Beach Salad that is too legit to quit.

Palm Beach salads are skillfully layered with avocado, shrimp, crab meat topped off with eggs. My version, as you’ll see, isn’t as skillful but it’s still very delicious.

I’m sure the pros in the kitchen use some sort of sauce/dressing that helps keep the layers of yumminess intact but I didn’t worry about whipping up anything like that for this salad. That cuts back on the calories too. Winking smile

I threw everything together based on memory and it was meant to make one serving but I was surprisingly filled up quickly. I had plenty leftover.

These are your ingredients:
* About 10 shrimp
* Crab meat
* 1/4-1/3 cups tomato and avocado
* 1 diced up hard boiled egg

I cooked the shrimp with a seafood seasoning and a bit of butter. I heated the crab meat through the same way, sans the seasoning.

I prepared the tomatoes, avocado and egg in the meantime.

After the shrimp and crab meat are done, cut them up into smaller pieces. Then start layering! Layer your plate with a bed of spinach, then avocado, crab meat, tomatoes, shrimp and top it off with the egg!

Now you have this masterpiece:

Give this salad a try–unless you’re allergic to seafood, please don’t give it a try in that case. Red heart

PowerMeal A Week Round 1

So after finishing up with June’s PowerMeal A Day challenge where each day had a topic and you had to highlight that topic in any one of your meals for that day, I’m starting PowerCakes’ PowerMeal A Week Challenge. Today is week 1!

For this challenge, you showcase POWERMEALS or recipes you want to share with others that are clean eats. I love finding and trying out new recipes so this will be fun! I did a good job keeping up with all my powermeal a day posts on IG so since this is just a weekly deal I’m sure it won’t be too difficult to keep updated. Open-mouthed smile

For this week, I made a wrap. I love wraps; they’re my go-to meal.

I’ll call it….a Chickpea Tuna and Rice Wrap–I could very easily give it a longer title because of all the yummy ingredients!

Speaking of yummy ingredients, here are the ingredients I used:

  • Spinach Garden Herb Tortilla
  • Greek yogurt
  • Brown long grain rice
  • Chick Pea Tuna salad:¬† 1 can tuna, add in diced tomatoes and onions, corn and mix together with lite mayo
  • 2 T salsa
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Feta cheese

I started by spreading Greek yogurt (substitute for sour cream) on the tortilla so a nice layer of rice would stick to it.

Then I added the tuna salad on top.

Top it off with salsa, lettuce feta.

Wrap it up and it’s a wrap! Winking smile

Happy Sunday!
