Super Simple Shrimp Salad

     Super Simple Shrimp Salad say that 3 times fast! It may not be easy to say, but it sure is easy to make. Some nights I get home from work and just want a quick meal ready in minutes. I always keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer which is perfect for this kind of night. All you have to do is defrost the shrimp in cold water for twenty minutes or so, peel and cook as desired. For this Super Simple Shrimp Salad I simply marinated and cooked the shrimp stove top in Ken's Light Caesar dressing. The dressing is so flavorful and adds the perfect kick to the shrimp. I created our fun filled salads with a mound of peppery arugula, grape tomatoes, briny feta, almond slivers, dried cranberries and tossed it with a lemon vinaigrette. Tip: If you live near Wegman's pick up their Lemon Vinaigrette, it is out of this world!! This salad had so much going on with it that it ate like a meal and was extremely satisfying. And, of course, with the calories you saved there's leftover room for dessert ;)
