“In this healthy Asian-inspired shrimp salad recipe, two types of greens—romaine lettuce and red cabbage—pair beautifully with the avocado and shrimp. Use extra dressing for another salad or as a sauce for baked fish. ”


    • Dressing
    • ¼ cup orange juice
    • ¼ cup cider vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • Salad
    • 2 cups sliced romaine lettuce
    • 1½ cups finely sliced (or diced) red cabbage
    • 3 ounces peeled cooked shrimp
    • ½ ripe avocado, diced


  • 1 To prepare dressing: Combine orange juice, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and oil in a small bowl or jar with a tight-fitting lid. Whisk or shake until the sugar has dissolved. (Makes about ⅔ cup dressing.)
  • 2 To prepare salad: Toss lettuce and cabbage in a large bowl with 3 tablespoons of the dressing. Transfer to a plate and top with shrimp and avocado. (Refrigerate the extra dressing for up to 5 days.)
