Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk applesauce, vinegar, peanut butter, tamari (or soy sauce), and sesame oil in a small bowl.

  • Place mesclun (or other greens) in a dinner bowl; arrange carrot, cucumber, and shrimp on top. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro. Serve the peanut dressing on the side.


Tip: Tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. If you are not concerned with eating gluten-free, you can use soy sauce instead.
