    WBChica's Note:

    I made up this recipe one night, and really liked it so thought I would share. I made it for just myself so if you are making it for more than one person I would adjust the measurements. Speaking of the measurements, I apologize if they are off a bit. It's one of those things you have to adjust the amounts of ingredients to suit your individual taste. I just threw together without measuring anything, but the measurements I provided are my best guess for the best taste. Also, I believe this would be good as a coleslaw type dish if you just omit the baby romaine and spinach and add a little more dressing.

    For the Salad

    For the Dressing


    1. 1
      Prepare the salad, in any order you like.
    2. 2
      Drizzle a frying pan with olive oil.
    3. 3
      Cook the shrimp over medium heat, seasoning it with mostly taco seasoning, and a few dashes of Chili Powder and garlic salt. Allow the cook to shrimp evenly, periodically drizzling with lime juice, and a small dash of cayenne pepper. (That cayenne pepper can be powerful!).
    4. 4
      While the shrimp are cooking, prepare the dressing. Whisk the sour cream, light mayo and taco seasoning in a small bowl. Sprinkle with the seasonings and lime juice to taste. If you prefer a creamier dressing, use less lime juice.
    5. 5
      Top the previously prepared salad with the shrimp and then with your desired amount of dressing.

      Made a version of this last night for supper and enjoyed it very much. We didn't have the cabbage or spinach (were using up a 5 POUND!!! bag of lettuce from a concession stand fund-raiser!), and had used up all the chili powder making the fund-raiser taco meat, but forged ahead anyway. This was very bad for not having enough shrimp on hand. I stir-fried the shrimp with some minced garlic which made all of us SWOON! It was so good!!! The dressing was delish. I put all the salad fixin's in my big Tupperware serving center, and let each person add their own. That worked well, and made clean up a cinch, too. Good recipe!
