My friend Jane and I have a favorite lunch spot that serves a fantastic salad on Wednesdays. I made my own version at home so I can share it with my family and eat it whenever I want. Save a lot of prep time and buy peeled, deveined shrimp and pre-washed lettuce. —Marla Clark, Albuquerque, New Mexico

"Delicious! The salad has just the right balance between tender and crispy. I did add extra salad ingredients...cucumber, red onion, and radish in order to make it a "dinner" salad. I cut down on the prep by using popcorn shrimp, too. Thanks, Marla for the inspiration. This salad is definitely a keeper!"
