Ingredients

    Dressing:
    1 medium zucchini, ends removed, sliced
    3 cups arugula or spinach
    1/2 avocado
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    juice of 1 lemon
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

    Salad:
    nonstick cooking spray
    12 ounces shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 head red leaf lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
    1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

Tips

This dressing is great served with raw vegetables, too.
Make a double batch of this dressing and use atop your favorite summer salads.


Directions

Dressing:
Puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
If the dressing is too thick to pour, add one tablespoon of water at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

Salad:
Spray the shrimp with nonstick cooking spray, then sprinkle on the paprika.
Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil to the hot pan, then add the shrimp once the oil is hot. Sauté the shrimp for 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Toss the shrimp and remaining salad ingredients with the dressing in a large bowl and serve.

    A little sour for my taste buds. I would decrease the amount of lemon used. Other suggestions would be to add some red onion. The onion really gives it some zing - 10/1/12

    So i made this dressing tonight. Too much lemon imo, it was way too sour. I would consider this to be more of a dip. I ended up putting in the whole avocado and it was similiar to guacamole. Will probally use the rest of it as a veggie dip so that I'm not wasting any food. I might use an Orange - 8/27/12

    I had only ever steamed shrimp before, but will saute again as a flavorful alternative. Shrimp were wet from preparation, so I sprinkled paprika on them and sprayed the pan with oil. Added Old Bay and the whole avocado; used spinach. 1/3 of dressing was enough for the entire salad. Good flavors. - 7/31/12

    Not much flavour. I had to add salt & cilantro. Ok as a lighter guacamole. (I just made the dressing). - 8/3/13

    Near the top of the recipe reads "Number of Servings: Four." At the end of the "Directions" the recipe reads "Makes 10 cups. Serving Size: Makes 5 two-cup servings." Are there four or five servings of two cups each? - 11/25/12

    Made for dinner today. WOW. It is great, I know the dressing looks interesting, but wow what taste. My only sub of necessity was a cucumber for the zucchini (store was out of zucchini). DH looked at the dressing, but when he heard what was in it, he sampled and come back for seconds. Very fresh. - 7/29/12

    Read the other notes before making this and cut back on the lemon. Works as a dressing. Could also be used as a dip. - 7/8/19

    I don't use salad dressing on any of my salads and use very little lemon for flavor. Loved the combination of greens and used Old Bay as well. I enjoyed this so much as I am a salad eater and looking for more variety. This made the cut! - 7/1/17

    The vinegar makes all the difference in this. Use your best. Also, add the juice a little at a time, so you can stop before it gets too tart. I didn't have a lemon but lime juice worked fine, - 6/8/16

    I think I would prefer a crisper green, even iceberg in spite of being less nutritious. The pureed greens are a great idea. I had to use a food processor to puree the vegetables a little at a time, then the blender to finish up making the dressing. My family liked it. - 6/8/14

    I made this recipe today. The entire thing was delish! I had problems making the dressing in my ancient equipment, but it has a wonderful taste, not overpowering, very subtle. - 4/26/14

    We haven't tested it with olive oil, but you're welcome to try. Start with 2 tablespoons. - 7/26/12

    Anything to replace the avocado, I hate it!, maybe olive oil? - 7/12/12
