Thai Sesame Shrimp Salad

All I’m craving right now are the big salads and this Thai Sesame Shrimp Salad is seriously sooo good! There’s something about a sesame dressing then a bunch of veggies in a salad and sautéed shrimp. AHHH I think you’re going to like this one! The dressing alone is great to make and use throughout the week even if you’re not making this salad. And if shrimp isn’t your thing, try doing this with grilled chicken or even tofu!
