Loaded Shrimp Salad with Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
I've been on a salad kick lately and have been trying to come up with different types and new salads and salad dressing. The dressing I put on this salad was Strawberry Poppy Seed and boy was it delicious. I found it on pinterest here.
I really like the salad dressing they use a First Watch Restaurant but could not find a copy kat of it. Will continue to look and will try some other new dressing and will share of course. :)
All items are chopped
4 large leaves Roman lettuce, chopped
2 large strawberries
1/2 delicious apple
6 red seedless grapes
1/4 large cucumber
small wedge of red cabbage
1/2 stalk celery
1 small carrot
2 TBL chopped almonds
6 large cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp
Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 TBL honey
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
3 tsp. poppy seeds
1/4 of a large red onion
2 cloves garlic
Put all ingredients in food processor. When well mixed put in jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Should give it at least an hour to meld the flavors.
This salad was so refreshing and would be wonderful on a hot summer day. I also made this with grilled chicken also excellent.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do all the things YOU Love.
