Shrimp Louis Salad Sandwich

The EatingWell Diet (2007)

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (9 votes)

This sandwich is a spin on the West Coast classic Louis salad—normally a big helping of fresh crab or shrimp served atop a cool pile of iceberg lettuce and doused with a heavy Russian-like dressing, known as Louis sauce. We've turned it into a healthy sandwich with lean seafood and a tangy, lighter Louis dressing. Crab would also be excellent on this sandwich—for convenience you can buy it in a 3 1/2-ounce pouch near the canned fish at the supermarket.
