Caesar & Barbecued Shrimp Salad

Caesar & Barbecued Shrimp ~ Super Salads

I absolutely love this much healthier version.

You can now enjoy this meal as a lighter alternative to the classic.

While most restaurants drown the greens in a heavy dressing.

This lemony version.

Lets the flavor of the plump and juicy, barbecued shrimp shine through.

Don't worry about the anchovies.

As they'll mellow in the dressing, giving it a rich taste that can't be duplicated.

This salad seems to go with everything.

And if you prefer, substitute folate-rich spinach instead of the typical romaine.

Your whole family will absolutely love this savory Caesar salad.

Tossed with tasty grilled shrimp.

Serves 4, about 2 1/2 c. each

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


3 Tbs. lemon juice, plus 4 lemon wedges for garnish

1 small clove garlic, coarsely chopped

2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 c. grated Asiago cheese, divided

1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

8 c. chopped hearts of romaine, (about 2 hearts)

1 lb. large, peeled and cooked or barbecued shrimp, (21-25 per lb. thawed if frozen)

1 c. croutons, preferably whole-grain (see Tip below)


Place lemon juice, mustard, anchovies (or anchovy paste).

And garlic in a food processor and process until smooth.

With the food processor running, gradually add oil and process until creamy.

Add 1/4 c. Asiago cheese and pepper and pulse until combined.

Combine romaine, shrimp and croutons in a large bowl.

Add the dressing and toss to coat.

Divide among 4 plates.

Top with the remaining 1/4 c. Asiago cheese and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Very, good salad!

Refreshing and hearty enough as a stand-alone meal.

Make Ahead Tip: The Caesar dressing (Step 1) will keep, in a jar in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.

Shake vigorously before tossing with the salad.
