Chopped Shrimp Salad

Hands down the best salad I've ever made! All thanks to the most underrated kitchen gadget --scissors! Made it so easy to chop up the kale into smaller pieces! For this salad I used frozen shrimp which is less expensive and can be stored for random salad days like this. Fresh may taste better but no difference in nutritional value!




  • 2 cups kale
  • 1/2 cup frozen, cooked shrimp *defrost this ahead of time, follow package for guidelines
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen and defrosted mango
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 red onions
  • 1 tbsp fried onions (from Trader Joes)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • pinch of chili flakes
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Wash and dry kale, add to a medium sized bowl. With kitchen shears, cut kale into bite sized shreds. Drizzle olive oil and massage kale with hands; this will help soften the kale and make it easier to chew. Toss in shrimp, mango, tomatoes, onions and fried onions. Season with garlic powder, chili flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Once all ingredients are tossed in the bowl, use kitchen shears to create a chopped salad.
