A few months ago, while I was planning the menu for my husband’s birthday dinner, I stumbled across a 1950’s recipe for Green Goddess Dressing with Seafood Salad from Better Homes & Gardens magazine. It looked so good–and different–that I decided to try it. Suffice to say, it was amazing!
Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less
Even so, not every day is a birthday, which means I don’t always have time to whip up dressing from scratch. And that’s why I decided to come up with a quick & simple “cheater” version that serves up (almost) all of the flavor in a lot less time!
And while it might seem fancy, this dish is deceptively easy and a fresh twist on the “one pot” trend. And the shrimp and lobster are just hearty enough for the salad to serve as an entree or as a luxurious side dish—definitely the perfect addition to any celebration!
Here is what you need:5 oz. washed salad greens 1 fennel bulb, cut into thin slices 1 can hearts of palm, drained and sliced thin 1 lb cooked shrimp, tails removed 1/2 cup cooked lobster tail, chopped into bite size pieces 1 bottle Green Goddess salad dressing
Step 1: Wash then slice the fennel into thin pieces.
Step 2: Drain hearts of palm and then slice.
Step 3: In a large bowl mix together, salad greens, sliced fennel and sliced hearts of palm. Add cooked shrimp and lobster, then drizzle with 4 tablespoons of green goddess dressing and enjoy!
