Roasted Shrimp Salad with Honey-Mustard Dressing

You may normally associate Honey-Mustard Dressing with chicken, but it tastes great in this Roasted Shrimp Salad. This flat-belly recipe also includes avocados, which are high in monounsaturated fats that help to fight belly fat! Turn this dish vegetarian by roasting tofu instead of shrimp. It gets nice and crispy, and tastes delish.
