SPICY SHRIMP THAI SALAD

My daughter, the Divine Miss M
is a 
Marvelous Cook!

This is her Spicy Thai salad she created with fresh shrimp that will leave you wanting seconds! This can be an easy weeknight meal by preparing your veggies during the day, then quickly taking 5 minutes to sautee the shrimp...toss together when ready to serve and you are golden!


 Cook it once and eat it twice! 



SPICY SHRIMP THAI SALAD

For the Dressing:
·         1/3 cup canola oil
·         3 cloves garlic, peeled
·         3 T. Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
·         2 T. water
·         2 T. White Vinegar
·         2 T. Honey
·         1 T. Sesame Oil
·         1 T. fresh grated ginger
·         Generous squeeze of lime juice

For the Salad:
·         1 cup frozen shelled edamame
·         1 bunch of Kale
·         3 carrots, chopped
·         2 bell peppers, one red and one yellow
·         ½ cup cilantro, chopped
·         3 green onions, chopped
·         ¾ cup cashews
**You could also add cucumber and/or avocado.

For the Shrimp:
·         1 T. butter
·         ½ lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
·         1-2 tsp chili powder
·         1-2 tsp cumin
·         Salt
·         Pepper


         Puree all the dressing ingredients in a food processor until smooth. 
Taste and adjust to fit your preferences.
          Cook the edamame by boiling for 3-5 minutes. Drain and cool.
           
Chop the kale, carrots, peppers, cilantro, and green onions.
      
Heat the butter over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and toss with the spices. Sauté the shrimp until they are evenly coated with the spices and fully cooked. (They will no longer be translucent.)
            
Toss all vegetables, cilantro, edamame, and cashews together. 
Drizzle with the dressing until well combined.
           
Top the salad with the cooked shrimp and more cashews.


 Miss M’s Savory Tip~The recipe said to process all the dressing ingredients but I just minced the garlic and shook it all up in an airtight container

  2. Those colors are beautiful. At first, I thought this would not be for me; however, after reading the ingredients, it sounds very good.
