We enjoy this salad quite a bit but with the addition of avocado it really ramps it up. Having tonight and will use everything we put in a normal salad - avocado, diced zucchini, cucumber, tomato, shredded carrot. The bacon just gives it some additional flavor. Adding home made croutons is also nice. We think the dressing called for is excellent.
Excellent and easy to make!
Made this for dinner last night and it was a real winner! Made a few changes: used spinach instead of arugula and seasoned the shrimp with a little lemon pepper and garlic before sauteeing in the bacon drippings. Added the shrimp and drippings right from the pan onto the spinach and tossed lightly with just a tablespoon or two of the yogurt dressing--it seemed too tart and we ended up not needing it. Served with garlic parmesan whole wheat toasts. GREAT light dinner for a hot August evening in the desert.
Loved this recipe, quick and easy for a weeknight in the summer. Next time I would substitute spinach or mixed greens for the arugula. I also substituted sour cream instead of yogurt and added some croutons.
This was quick, easy and delicious. I added salt and pepper to the dressing to take the tartness of the yogurt down a notch and used mixed salad greens. Served with garlic breadsticks. Very filling and pretty on the plate. I would definitely serve it for guests but it does need to be served immediately after tossing with the dressing or the lettuce gets a little soft.
I didn't get why you'd fry shrimp in bacon fat b/c it didn't flavor the shrimp at all. -> It's the dressing I really liked alot
My husband and I love this dish. It is so simple to make yet the flavors come together deliciously. I add red onion and don't use all the dressing. I think it would be great with a little crumbled feta or goat cheese, too, which I may try next time.
I made two changes. I added a bit of spice to the shrimp, cause that's the way we like it and I used mixed greens instead of only arugala. It was pretty good, but not great. The dressing was good and really simple. It's also not a very substantial dinner, but if your looking for something light, it's perfect.
I used Low Fat Cranberry Balsamic dressing. The next time I make it, I'm going to use fresh grated Parmesan cheese. My husband ate all but one serving.
Made a couple of changes... used a mix of salad greens instead of just arugula and used a half tablespoon of horseradish in the dressing instead of pepper. Just a note: I find it curious that the dressing is referred to as 3 ingredients when it is 4!
Great recipe. Easy, good, and relatively healthy.
This recipe looked great on print, but tasted less than great at the dinner table. The end product wasn't hateful, it just didn't make the grade for me or for any of my dinner companions. In fact, no one has asked me to make it again or for the recipe.
Delicious!!! Super easy to make, and perfect dinner to give yourself the excuse to have some dessert afterwards. I added some breadsticks. And we will definitely make again.
Excellent flavor and was just right on a hot humid night. I substituted spinach for the arugula as spinach is currently available locally. The shrimp was slightly less - 1 lbs.. Would definitely make again.
