To make

Instructions

For the Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until creamy, approximately 10—15 seconds. Refrigerate until ready to use.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter until translucent and bubbly. Stir in blackening seasoning until mixed. Add cooked shrimp and heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine the remaining salad ingredients along with the seasoned shrimp and Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. Toss until the salad is coated. Serve and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Recommended, toss the salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette close to serving time to keep the salad crisp. Vegetables can be tossed ahead of time and kept crisp in the refrigerator for several hours if undressed.
