Spicy Shrimp Veggie Bowls with Peanut Vinaigrette

Who knew a bowl filled with so many colorful veggies could taste so good? And all that crunch…. Oh, how I love you.

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I decided to focus on vibrant, healthy, and fresh meals this week, and oh man, am I excited about the results.

I realize I say this all the time, but holy moly was it delicious.  We (as in me) will definitely be making this again soon.

I think I had forgotten how some of the easiest meals to prepare are not only the prettiest, but super healthy too!

This bowl is so so simple and can be made in less than 30 minutes.  The most time consuming part is chopping all of those yummy veggies.  It takes less than 4 minutes to saute the shrimp, so you do the math!

I decided to make a really creamy and delicious peanut vinaigrette to drizzle on top of this bright and cheery bowl of goodness, and it’s just perfect.  This dressing can definitely be made ahead and stored in a mason jar in the fridge.

Lastly, now that you’ve got me thinking about it, this would be perfect for a lunch meal prep.  Just divide the shrimp and veggies among these Premium Glass Meal Prep Containers and call it a day!
