Want to add a protein? We opted for shrimp, but feel free to try chicken, steak or tofu.
Which herbs should you choose? This, of course is a preference, but we love cilantro with this recipe. Not a fan of cilantro, try basil. Looking for greek or Italian flavor, try oregano.
How do I make it keto? Omit the pasta and add lettuce.
Any Variations? Feel free to add lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes or sesame seeds. If you do, double the dressing from step 2 but omit the avocado.
