I've been wondering what I should do with our new wine vinegars. Their zesty flavors are perfect for salads, but pictures of my plain green salads and vinegar don't make blog posts(even if I do eat them often).
A sale on shrimp moved this salad to the fore! All the measurements are for 2 side salads so scale up however you need. The dressing makes a little over 1/2 cup, so it should last you a bit longer!
Sesame Prosecco Salad
8-12 medium shrimp, cooked
4 cups favorite greens
1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 lime, sliced into wedges *optional*
1 tbsp Sesame Oil with Garlic and Ginger
1 tsp light soy sauce
sesame seeds for garnish
In a saute pan, warm the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. After 1-2 minutes, they should be almost warmed through. Raise the temperature to high and sprinkle with the soy sauce. Let caramelize for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and toss with sesame seeds.
Assemble the salad with a good toss and drizzle with dressing.
Prosecco Lime Dressing
1/4 cup Prosecco Vinegar
