Too hot to cook? Try a fresh, crisp, shrimp salad tonight!
Your air conditioning is pumping as hard as it can and your power meter is spinning too fast to see! Give your kitchen, yourself, and the power company a break by just boiling one small pot for 5 minutes today and using your toaster for 2 minutes. This shrimp salad is delicious!
Here's the recipe for two servings:
1 container organic romaine lettuce, torn into chunks
1 avocado, diced
1 medium size carrot, grated
1 celery stalk, diced
1 medium tomato, diced (optional)
1/2 pound (or more if you wish) medium shelled, raw shrimp
Steam the shrimp until just lightly pink. Chill in ice water. Peel and add to salad ingredients tossed. Drizzle with Green Goddess dressing. Serve with buttered sourdough toast.
Tip: If you ask your grocer to steam the shrimp for you (usually free!) you will save even more on your power bill!
