Looking for a fancy meal for your next special occasion but short on time? This extra special shrimp and lobster salad comes together in less than 10 minutes and is the perfect way to make any meal a celebration!

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!

DIG DEEPER


This mini cookbook has ingredients that take just five ingredients or less.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!

Assemble you fish salad ingredients: washed salad greens, fennel, hearts of palm, cooked shrimp, lobster tail and Green Goddess salad dressing.

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

Slice fennel into thin pieces.

Step 1: Wash then slice the fennel into thin pieces.

Slice hearts of palm into bite size pieces.

Step 2: Drain hearts of palm and then slice.

In a large bowl mix together, salad greens, sliced fennel, shrimp, lobster and add salad dressing.

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!

Serve salad on a plate and enjoy.
