**Disclaimer: I was compensated to create this recipe for Eat Shrimp. All opinions expressed are completely my own, as per usual.

So my beloved Indulge Conference that I’ve been working on for months and months finally happened this weekend. I had a wonderful time talking with old friends, making new friends, showcasing lots of Portland goodies plus eating my body weight in doughnuts. I wish I was kidding…lol!!

But all that indulgence {see what I did there?} had to come to an end at some point and now I’m back on the health train. Salad anyone?

Honestly, after a weekend of eating whatever I wanted, I’m craving vegetables.

I know, I know. I was shocked too.

The trick for convincing myself to eat A LOT of salad is variation. If you keep switching things up, you’ll never get bored and getting those greens in won’t seem like a chore!

For the salad I’m making today, I tried taking all the necessary short-cuts to make this salad easy, interesting and delicious for me. That meant cooking the healthiest {and fastest cooking!} protein I know and using some SaladSavers {which are fun salad toppings packaged together for sale next to where all that pre-washed lettuce is at the grocery store.} For this recipe, I used the Zesty and the Sharp DeLallo SaladSavors, pre-washed lettuce, my favorite Italian dressing {Olive Garden kind} and some large shrimp.

Crazy simple to make, but OMG it’s delicious! And it’ll turn you into a salad lover, just in time for all this hot weather.

Here’s how to make it:

Start by marinating the shrimp in some of your favorite Italian dressing, black pepper and parsley. Let these sit for a few minutes before throwing them on the grill.

2-4 minutes later the shrimp is all cooked! Perfection 🙂

Now we can top our pre-washed lettuce with our SaladSavors.

What comes in these SaladSavors you ask? Well, we have crumbled feta cheese, grated white cheddar, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, olives and roasted red peppers. Pop those containers open and sprinkle them over your salad. Add the cooked shrimp, a little more dressing and that’s it!

Super easy to make, has a fabulous flavor, plus the sweet grilled shrimp tastes so amazing with all the other ingredients.  Nothing screams summer more than crisp, cold lettuce, a fabulous dressing and grilled protein.

Try this out tonight and see if you love it as much and Gord and I did.

  4. First of all let me say that Indulge was amazing! You all did a fabulous job with your first ever food blogger conference. 🙂 And I am right where you are- wanting ALL the healthy foods, lol! I spent the past 2 weekends doing foodie travel and eating ALL the foods, so I need a break from the overindulgence as well. 😉 And DeLallo? Love them! I used to live 15 minutes from their store in Jeannette! I shopped there every single week.
