I am a busy physician, and work anywhere between 40-70 hours a week. Some days I come home exhausted and ravenous which means I need to have easy recipes at my fingertips to continue eating healthy. I also happen to be obsessed with salads. This recipe is my go-to salad specifically designed for those days where the last thing I want to do is cook. It is delicious, simple, and most importantly takes only 5 minutes to make. 

Serves 1 


  • 1 large zucchini, spiralized (or cubed)
  • 1 sprig of fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of pre-cooked wild caught shrimp
  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes
  • choice of salad dressing


  1. Cut off top and bottom of zucchini so edges are flat
  2. Place zucchini into a spiralizer to create beautiful zoodles (if you don’t own a spiralizer, cube the zucchini)
  3. Place zoodles into a medium size bowl
  4. Add thinly sliced fresh basil leaves, shrimp, and cherry tomatoes
  5. Add salad dressing and mix thoroughly
  6. If desired add salt and pepper for seasoning
  7. Serve and enjoy!
