I recently had a business lunch at Clyde’s, a favorite DC area restaurant. Check them out here: http://www.clydes.com/main/index.cfm. I had such an amazing shrimp salad that I couldn’t wait to go home and try to recreate it, lightened up of course. You’ll love the sweetness of the shrimp, coupled with the bitterness of the radicchio and the tart lemon herb dressing. This salad would make a wonderful luncheon, or be right in place at a springtime brunch table. I’m serving it for dinner tonight with a gorgeous New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and some toasted flatbread. I think we’ll wrap up the meal with mango sorbet and some mixed fresh berries.
By the way, if you’re using this for family dinner and your kids are not big salad eaters, you can follow this plan. Place 4 shrimp per kid on a plate, add a slice of bacon, a side of edamame, some cut up radishes (if your kids will eat them), string cheese, and mixed fruit to round out their meal.
