Five Ingredient Main-Dish Salad: Light Shrimp Caesar Salad great for Earth Day

April 15, 2009


I used to only prepare Caesar Salads when I was having a large Italian or steak dinner. Now, I make them all of the time since my three kids (who are 8, 10 and 11) love them so much. This version is only five ingredients which is perfect this time of year when you want to eat light (and celebrate Earth Day) but also are in a hurry. Purchase already-peeled and deveined shrimp to save time, or substitute chicken or salmon for the shrimp. If I don’t have time to prepare a homemade dressing, I buy Ken’s Reduced-Fat Caesar dressing, which is really yummy. 

Five Ingredient Shrimp Caesar Salad

Prep: Prep: 10 minutes
Yield: Yield: 4 to 6 servings
6 cups romaine lettuce leaves
11/4 pounds cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup whole-grain croutons
1 Reduced-fat Caesar salad dressing (I like Ken's)
1. Toss romaine and remaining ingredients in a large salad bowl or serving platter.
Drizzle with dressing.
