Shrimp & Chopped Salad Recipe Weight Watchers 7 Points

I wrote this recipe to be able to calculate my Weight Watchers points for tonight’s dinner. I made the same thing last week before re-starting WW and thought it was amazing.
This is a super easy dinner that takes very little time to make and assemble. The only cooking is sauteing the shrimp (give it time to chill in the fridge, about an hour) and then you’re just plating a prepared salad kit with the shrimp on top! The portion size is satisfying and will keep you full!
