I created this salad when I wanted a simple shrimp salad that also used a lot of the vegies and fruit that I had in the refrig. This salad is very adaptable to whatever fresh fruits and vegetables are on hand. Recipe loosely adapted from All Recipes.

Well I hope this qualifies, it is definately kitchen sink shrimp salad!! I used butter lettuce, bits of red, yellow and green sweet pepper, celery, green onion, cucumber, diced tomato and a couple of chopped snap peas. but instead of the sour cream & mustard & orange juice I just placed the shrimp on top and put a spoon full of seafood sauce on top, with some garlic/balsamic dressing around the greens. Turned out delicious and used up a lot of bits and pieces left in the fridge, but no fruit, will have to try it with fruit too and will try the dressing too. Thanks for a great idea!! I will be doing this one again often!!

My fridge must be stocked like your fridge, because I had everything on hand except the shrimp and cauliflower (and the strawberries, which I omitted). I really liked the tanginess of the dressing and will try it on some other salads.
