Spring time always makes me want to grill, and the warmer weather also alerts me to the fact that days of tank tops, sundresses and (eek!) bathing suits are coming.  Which brings me directly to… salad. 😉

This salad is absolutely delicious, healthy, and nails all the major food groups except dairy.  Men like it because they get to fire up the grill.  Women like it because it’s salad.  Children like it because it contains fruit and is sweet.
Mandarin and Almond Shrimp Salad
Ingredients:
16 large raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 c sesame ginger dressing (See below about Newman’s Own)
1 head romaine, cut up
1 15 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 c sliced red pepper
1/2 c sugar snap peas
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 c cucumber, sliced
If you can’t find Newman’s Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger dressing, first, I suggest you search longer and harder because it is AMAZING.  If you’re still unsuccessful, you can doctor up your own with 1/2 cup Kraft Catalina dressing, 1 T sesame oil, 1 t ginger, 1/2 t garlic, and 2 T rice wine vinegar.
Directions:
 1.  Skewer shrimp and marinate in 1/3 c dressing for 30 minutes or more in a large shallow dish in refrigerator.
2.  Remove shrimp, discard dressing.
3.  Grill shrimp 4-5 minutes each side, turning once.
4.  Toss lettuce with 1/3 c dressing.   Arrange salad, veggies, and almonds on individual plates, and lay shrimp skewer across each one.
5.  Drizzle shrimp with remaining 1/3 c dressing.
