This easy, 15-minute salad is a fantastic mix of colors and flavors. It features shrimp that's been marinated with a simple mixture of lime zest, lime juice, and soy sauce. Toss in the rest of the ingredients, which include bok choy, bean sprouts, yellow and sweet red peppers, mushrooms, and crabmeat, and just toss to combine. Your gorgeous twist on a traditional salad is ready to go. Cook's tip: If you can't find bok choy, you can use a combination of crisp lettuce, such as romaine or iceberg, with some finely sliced white cabbage. Also, you can use your favorite type of mushroom instead of button, as well as any fresh herbs you have on hand instead of the cilantro.
