Greek Shrimp Salad
2 hearts of romaine
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
1/4-1/2 of a red onion (depending on how onion-y you like your salads)
1 red, orange, or yellow pepper
1/2 cup feta cheese
1 lb of shelled, deveined shrimp
1-2 tsp. Cavender’s seasoning
Salt & Pepper to taste
Greek dressing, recipe follows
1 cup good olive oil
1 cup red wine vinegar
2 TBSP lemon juice
2 cloves of minced garlic (use 2 TSP garlic powder if you don’t like a textured dressing)
2 TBSP minced onion (use 2 TSP onion powder if you don’t like a textured dressing)
3 TSP dried oregano
2 TSP dried basil
2 TSP salt
1 TSP ground pepper
3 TBSP finely crumbled feta cheese (omit if you don’t like a textured dressing)
Put all ingredients in a mason jar and shake it up! The dressing is best after it’s sat for a day or two, but still great the day of.
For the Salad:
Chop all of the vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
Sprinkle Cavender’s seasoning, and salt and pepper on peeled and deveined shrimp.
Heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a skillet. Add shrimp and sauté until cooked through.
