Number of Servings: 2


    3/4 Pound medium size shrimp
    1 small lime, juice of
    Lettuce leaves (I use 2.5 C Romaine)
    1 C canned garbonzo beans (chick peas), drained
    1 Large ripe tomato, cored and sliced
    2 eggs, hard-cooked
    2 Lemons, cut in half crosswise
    4 Ripe black olives
    4 thin, round slices bell pepper


Drop the shrimp into boiling water flavored with a little salt and lime juice. Cook until just pink, usually 1-2 minutes. Drain and cool slightly; shell and de-vein. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill. ( can "cheat" like I do and use cooked shrimp!)

Arrange lettuce leaves to cover 2 large dinner plates. Place a mound of shrimp on one side and a mound of garbonzo beans on the other. Place tomato slices in the four "corners" of the plate. Cut eggs lengthwise in quarters and place quarter next to each tomato slice. Place a lemon half at the end of each plate and 2 olives at the top and bottom. Place the bell pepper rings at the edges. Cover and chill if not serving immediately.

Serve with dressing (recipe separate).
