🌱🍤 It’s an amazing combination of flavors and textures that will make your heart and tummy happy.

Here are some tips to keep things simple and breeze through the preparation:

1️⃣ Choose quality ingredients. Pick fresh, plump shrimp, canned white beans (or cook them yourself if you have time), and vibrant arugula leaves. Fresh ingredients elevate the taste and nutritional value of your salad. 🌟

2️⃣ Give your shrimp some love by marinating it in a simple blend of olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Let it soak up those flavors for at least 15 minutes before cooking. 🍋

3️⃣ Quick-cook the shrimp: Sauté or grill your shrimp for a few minutes until they turn pink and opaque. Avoid overcooking, as it can make them rubbery. 🍤🍳

4️⃣ Feel free to get creative and add extra ingredients to jazz up your salad. Sliced cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced red onions, or crumbled feta cheese can all bring additional flavors and textures to the mix. 🍅🧀

Remember, the beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity!
