Asian Shrimp Salad

I was inspired to make this salad over at my friend Lisa’s blog (shrimp & avocado salad with carrot ginger dressing).  My salad uses a marinated shrimp and I cheated on the dressing.  It was a refreshing meal.

ASIAN SHRIMP SALAD

1 pound marinated, broiled shrimp

salad greens

shredded carrots

tomato, chopped

avocado, sliced or chopped

green onion, chopped

ginger dressing (or dressing of choice)

I chose the following marinade for the shrimp:

2 tablespoons orange juice, plus 2 teaspoons orange juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil, plus 1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 1/4 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger or 1 1/4 teaspoons dried ginger
2 scallions, chopped

4 cloves garlic, crushed

1 lb. shrimp

Mix marinade ingredients together and marinate shrimp 20 minutes to an hour before cooking.  Grill or broil shrimp until pink and cooked through.

As for the dressing, I used Tastefully Simple’s “tangy ginger” dressing:

It was very good.  This can be ordered from a Tastefully Simple consultant, such as my friend Anne: Tastefully Simple.
