A simple salad with bold colors is a beautiful definition of “less is more”. Fresh flavors of shrimp, herbs, and edamame make for a filling green bowl.

Ever since making a mental note to myself to eat at least one salad a week; I’ve been thinking of ways to make salads more fun and of course pretty on the eyes.
Today, I’m sharing an easy salad recipe that I made this week. If you are a shrimp lover, listen up! You won’t be disappointed.
This salad consists of only three ingredients: lettuce, edamame, and shrimp. When it comes to this salad, less is definitely more.
Free feel to substitute cilantro with any herbs of choice. I would do basil, mint, or thyme.
I think any dressing would do but I tossed mine with a slightly creamy caesar salad dressing. Hope you’ll give this a try.
- 6 large shrimp
- Olive oil, for drizzling
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Paprika, to taste
- 1 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped (may also use basil, mint, or thyme)
- ½ cup shelled edamame
- Enough to fill desired bowl, Lettuce of choice, cut into bite-sized peices (I used romaine)
- Preheat oven to 300F.
- Drizzle peeled shrimp with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, paprika, and cilantro.
- Fill bowl with lettuce.
- Top with shrimp, edamame, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Dress with a drizzle of dressing or oils an vinegars of choice.
