Tropical Shrimp Salad

Tropical Shrimp Salad

Don’t get stuck in a salad rut! Salads are supposed to be healthy, but it’s time to get beyond the same old iceberg lettuce, croutons, and high-fat dressing. This Tropical Shrimp Salad has a perfect mix of summer ingredients combined with a creamy, cool dill dressing.

When I’m in a rush, I’ll buy an already-chopped melon or pineapple, since they’re so readily available in grocery stores these days. For a fun presentation, I’ll sometimes serve this with flair in a scooped-out honeydew or cantaloupe melon half.
