I really enjoyed the play. By the time it was over though, we were all starving so we went looking for a restaurant for a late night dinner. In an unfamiliar part of town, this proved to be a challenging task. We ended up at Chick Fil A which was not what we had planned but it was a quick option for four hungry girls.
Since we were planning on going out to a nice dinner, I wanted to eat a light lunch. One of my favorite "light" and easy lunches is shrimp Cobb salad. It is really satisfying and super delicious.
Shrimp Cobb Salad
½ pound shrimp, cooked 1/4 cup oil
4 slices turkey bacon zest of 1 lime
3 cups salad greens 3 Tablespoons lime juice
3 Tablespoons mint 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
3 Tablespoons basil ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 avocado, sliced
Cook bacon in skillet. Wipe clean and add shrimp and toss with paprika. Cook 2 min. on each side. Put lettuce in bowl. Top with bacon, avocado, mint, basil and cooked shrimp.
This recipe makes 4 large servings of Cobb salad. I love the bright flavors from the fresh mint and fresh basil. Adding turkey bacon and shrimp makes it seem more like a meal and less like a side dish. I made a really big plate of this salad and it filled me up and kept me full for a long time.
