Who doesn’t love a fresh healthy meal they can pull together in minutes?

I know, I do.

Especially when it involves huge wild-caught shrimp, sweet apple chips, and creamy buttermilk dressing.

Fresh Roasted Shrimp Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

We are still on our “lots of raw veggies” kick and I can’t tell you how good I feel these days. Eating lighter meals, makes you feel light on your toes, without the bloating and lethargic fog that comes with a heavy carb load.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my bread and sweets as much as anyone, but I also love feeling healthy.

Roasted Shrimp Salad with Buttermilk Dressing with DeLallo SaladSavors

Something I discovered last year, that makes creating a healthy dinner salad super easy, is DeLallo SaladSavors!

You remember DeLallo, right? Inventors of the “olive bar” concept in your grocery store. Makers of incredible organic pasta, with whole wheat and gluten free options. Importers of a marvelous array of authentic Italian ingredients like sun dried sweet peppers, capers, olive oil and rich balsamic vinegar.

What would we do without DeLallo…

DeLallo Crisp SaladSavors

Well, DeLallo now makes fresh perfectly-portioned ingredient kits to spruce up your dinner salad!

SaladSavors come in six different blends that take all the guessing (and grocery isle strolling) out of creating a fresh and fabulous salad that your whole family will love… Even the kids.

Today I used DeLallo’s Crisp SaladSavor, a blend of crisp sweet apple chips, toasted almonds, and sharp white cheddar. I tossed it with chopped romaine lettuce. Then made a quick creamy herb buttermilk dressing to drizzle over the top.

The buttermilk dressing is a lighter, perkier, version of ranch dressing with fresh dill and garlic. It has a zingy flavor for spring and summer that complements the “Crisp” SaladSavors blend, as well as hot roasted shrimp.

The trick with roasting perfect shrimp is to focus on the color and shape of the shrimp.

When roasted, the shrimp should turn bright pink, but should remain in a C shape, not close up like an O.

C’s are moist and juicy. O’s are overcooked and rubbery.
