Summer… Salad Time !

11 05 2010

Stop ! .. “salad time” MC Hammer…

I grabbed this recipe from a website called

They seem like a swell couple and had some great recipes… but I can never leave well enough alone, so of course I tweaked this recipe.

Buffalo Shrimp

1 lb Zipper back shimp 21-30 per bag

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

1/3 cup of Frank’s hot sauce

1 tablespoon butter, Becel.. whatever you have going on at your house

some celery stalks and baby spinach for serving


saute shrimp in heated pan with oil, while they are starting to heat up and turn pink i grab them from the pan and de-shell them.. you can leave them on as well… whatever you want to do

once cooked, transfer to a bowl that has the Old Bay Seasoning and Butter/margarine awaiting and coat until everything is delicious looking.. slather Frank’s Buffalo wing sauce and coat, set aside so all the juices absorb

Blue Cheese Dressing- so easy !

makes one cup, serving size is 1 tbsp (so 16 servings per recipe)

4 ounces of blue cheese, crumbled

3 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons vinegar white

1 teaspoon Dijon

1/2 cup of Hellman’s reduced fat mayo

Directions: crumble blue cheese, add the rest and squish up until creamy good.

In a good sized bowl, toss in baby spinach, cut up celery, the shrimp and some of the blue cheese dressing and VOILA delicious

My Daily plate says that  8 shrimp, some baby spinach, and 1 tablespoon of blue cheese dressing is 190 calories, 25 grams of protein, and  8 grams of fat ! Non-WLS people double the amount.

Viva la summer…
