Celebrate spring with a fresh, entrée-worthy salad. This one features protein-rich shrimp, colorful corn and cherry tomatoes and a zesty sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. Roasting the veggies with olive oil first adds a nice flavor and actually increases your body’s ability to absorb the cancer-fighting lycopene compound.

Directions

Salad
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. On sheet pan place corn and tomatoes and toss with 2 teaspoons oil until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper. Roast about 10-15 minutes or until tomatoes begin to tighten up.
  3. In a sauté pan, add 1 teaspoon oil and heat to medium-high.
  4. Add shrimp to pan and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Once shrimp has tightened up and turned pink (approximately 4 minutes) remove from heat.
  6. Chop lettuce to desired leaf size.
  7. Slice avocado in half and remove pit. Cut slices while still in the skin and scoop out with a spoon.
  8. Arrange lettuce on plate or bowl and top with roasted tomato and corn, avocado and shrimp.
Vinaigrette
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, sun-dried tomato and garlic. When well mixed, slowly add the oil in a small stream; the dressing should bind together and look uniform throughout with no separating of oil and vinegar.
  2. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
