Shrimp Caesar Salad
This shrimp Caesar salad is a twist on the classic in more ways than one. Instead of drowning the greens in a heavy dressing, this lemony version lets the taste of the shrimp shine through. And don't worry about the anchovies—they'll mellow in the dressing, giving it a rich taste that can't be duplicated.
Make Ahead Tip: The dressing (Step 1) will keep, in a jar in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days. Shake vigorously just before tossing with the salad.
Tip: To make homemade croutons: Toss 1 cup whole-grain bread cubes with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, a pinch each of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spread out on a baking sheet and toast at 350°F until crispy, turning occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes.
