Skinny Recipes

Ever since I stumbled upon Gina's Skinny Recipes I've been a huge fan.

Gina updates her site regularly, with easy to follow instructions, personally taken pictures, and nutritional information on every meal.

Can you beat that?

Before I went to the grocery store last night, I browsed some of her recent posts for dinner inspiration. A perfect summer salad was just what I was craving, so I was beyond delighted to see a Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad featured.
Along with being an amazing cook, her photography skills are beyond fab too
 I made a few substitutions to Gina's recipe; I chose green pepper for cucumber and white onion for red. 

And I made my own creamy cilantro dressing (ranch, tomtilla salsa, mayo, cream cheese, lime, red pepper and salt).

Overall, this salad was beyond amazing. It makes 6 servings so Joel and I had plenty for dinner and were able to bring a heaping portion for lunch too.  

Most of the ingredients you probably have at home already, so if you do, take my advice and cook this up stat.


  1. This looks like the perfect dinner for a hot summer night! Delicious!

  2. I love healthy recipes, these all look delicious, thanks for sharing!!

  3. I just added this to my "to cook" folder earlier this week and this just reminded me to make it soon! Her website is fabulous!
