Simple Shrimp Salad with Sesame Soy Vinaigrette

October 12, 2017

Continuing with the salad discussion from my last blog post, I'd like to introduce you to one of the most flavorful salads I make at home.  The magic is in the "kitchen sink" of an Asian salad dressing, wherein I just combine a bunch of different condiments and create a flavor explosion to be drizzled over grilled shrimp and fresh veggies. I like to double the recipe make a larger batch of this dressing and keep it in the refrigerator where it will keep for a couple days.


Salad Dressing
2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Shallots
1/2 Teaspoon Minced Ginger
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Ponzu, Japanese Dipping Sauce
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Hoisin Sauce
1 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Oil
1/3 Cup Rice Vinegar
1/2 Cup Avocado Oil {Or Canola Oil}

Your Choice of Greens {I used butter lettuce and spinach}
Chopped Cucumber
Chopped Red Onion
Chopped Red Pepper
Chopped Carrots
Sliced Avocado
Grilled Shrimp

{In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except for the avocado or canola oil, and mix well to combine.}

{Slowly whisk in your avocado oil or canola oil until it comes together.}

{Chop veggies of your choice to add to a base of mixed greens.  I used cucumber, carrots, red onion, red pepper and  avocado}

On a pretty platter, arrange your lettuce, veggies, grilled shrimp and drizzle with the amazingly flavorful sesame soy vinaigrette.  ENJOY!
