Low Carb Parmesan Artichoke Heart Shrimp Salad. I have actually begun making and eating a few more salads than I used to. I have been and continue to be an avid carnivore but a small accompanying salad has now made its way to my table and…this salad has shrimp so…hey. A salad, in this country, is traditionally eaten before a meal whereas in Europe it comes at the end of a meal. Me? I tend to eat my salad with my meal. There is nothing particularly special about this salad except it is really tasty. It has a little dairy, a little seafood, a few veggies and a few greens and how much more balance could you want? Now I would normally make my own Caesar Salad Dressing but for this salad and for simplicity I am going to recommend Briannas Asiago Caesar Salad Dressing. Though I certainly don’t like the canola oil or a couple of the other ingredients, the taste is really pretty spot on and eating it every once in a while is not going to hurt anyone.

- Disgustingly, all I had was a choice of either head lettuce or bok choy so for this salad I chose both with bok choy for a little color and of course romaine would be the lettuce of choice here.
- I forgot the pepper for the pic, I put it on later and you really do need it.
