Refreshing Seafood Salad

Spring is here and that means two things:

  1. We need to start eating healthier to be bikini ready (right now we’re not!)
  2. It’s getting warmer and we want spring / summer recipes – Bye Bye soups and stews 😉

If you know the Divas you know that we never do healthy if it isn’t god damn delicious. This refreshing seafood salad is just that, it’s healthy but more importantly, it tastes amazing, with orange and strawberries for sweetness, shrimp and crab for a filling protein, avocado for creaminess and a whole bunch of other ingredients that come together perfectly. Healthy never tasted this good!
