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!

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.
