It seems when I'm out with friends on some version of the protein and vegetable diet, they often end up with a Caesar Salad and Grilled Chicken or Grilled Salmon, if they're lucky. I don't eat Caesar salad in restaurants a lot because they're often goopy-- soft and unappetizing. And, truly, I love my own salads. Even more, I love homemade vinaigrette.
Yesterday Dave and I were at the grocery looking at fish for supper and I saw a great buy on large, gorgeous uncooked shrimp. (Since shrimp takes two minutes to cook, why is there so much pre-cooked shrimp for sale?) I remembered I had a bag of cleaned romaine at home in the frig, and asked for a pound of that shrimp for $9.99. When the shrimp are large, there aren't that many in a pound; I figured whatever was leftover, we'd have the next day for a snack.
