Shrimp, fresh crunchy vegetables and a homemade vinaigrette come together deliciously in this super-easy main dish salad. Ideal for dinner or lunch, this dish makes a wonderful salad for a brunch buffet or baby shower celebration. Add a diced avocado for a touch of richness. This is also delicious with calamari or scallops or a combination of the two. Serve on a bed of arugula or other greens or atop a crusty whole grain baguette. Chop the shrimp a bit and serve this in some endive leaves for an easy appetizer variation.
