Shrimp Salad with Grilled Veggies
Mr. Toro's lunch today is a shrimp salad on a bed of lettuce and shaved carrots with grilled zucchini, garnished with fresh dill and celery fronds. Dessert is a cup of diced seedless watermelon and a krispy treat.
I think mayonnaise is disgusting--I have always hated the taste, even as a child. Add in the fact it is profoundly unhealthy, and I'm happy not to use any.
The shrimp salad has a dressing made out of plain non-fat organic yogurt, dijon mustard, fresh dill, and black pepper. Tossed in is some fire grilled shrimp, leftover from dinner, and some celery and carrots.
--Edit: I forgot to mention I also used a squeeze of lime and some red pepper flakes in the dressing--
The zucchini is likewise leftover from dinner--I sliced it on the bias so it would be less likely to slip through the grill, then brushed it lightly with olive oil. About 6-8 minutes on the grill and voila, delicious.
