A salad with a mix of shrimp, crunchy fennel, and sweet grapes in a fresh lime dressing.

Ingredients

uncooked shrimp

¾ pound(s), medium, peeled and deveined

uncooked fennel bulb(s)

½ medium, trimmed and very thinly sliced (or 1 cup sliced celery)

grapes

1 cup(s), seedless, halved

fennel

2 Tbsp, chopped Fennel leaves

reduced calorie mayonnaise

2 Tbsp

fresh lime juice

1 Tbsp, or lemon juice

cantaloupe

2 medium, halved and seeded

chopped walnuts

2 Tbsp, toasted

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add the shrimp and simmer until just opaque in the center, 3–4 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking. Dry the shrimp on paper towels.
  2. Combine the shrimp, fennel or celery, grapes, fennel leaves, mayonnaise, and lime or lemon juice in a medium bowl. Spoon into the cantaloupe halves, sprinkle with the walnuts, and serve at once.

Notes

To save time, buy the shrimp precooked at the fish market the day you plan to serve this and omit Step 1.Chopped fennel leaves add flavor to this dish. If you’re using celery in place of the fennel, consider adding chopped fresh mint to replace the fennel leaves.
