Yield

4 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 cups)

Combine potatoes with shrimp, feta, olives, and handfuls of crunchy veggies for this satisfying spin on an old favorite. "Baking" the potatoes in the microwave instead of the oven cuts cooking time in half.

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salad:
  • 5 cups small red potatoes, quartered (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, cooked and peeled
  • 3 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 cup yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
