Mixed Green Salad with Crunchy Shrimp & Lemon Vinaigrette

Recipe: Mixed Green Salad with Crunchy Shrimp & Lemon Vinaigrette

Every time I visit Wegmans — my holy grail food shopping mecca, I am guaranteed to overspend and buy stuff that isn’t even on my list. Something I always get, that’s never on my list is their big ass container of pre-washed mixed greens in the produce section. It’s a salad lovers dream. I am admittedly bad at eating vegetables every single day, so this salad is my savior. I basically grab a handful, toss it with about a tablespoon of whatever vinaigrette I want to seduce my senses, and keep it movin’. I had a few leftover shrimp just relaxin in my fridge and realized I had a few other yummy fixin’s to throw together. So I tossed a few shrimp with some seasoning, and lightly coated them with panko (Japanese breadcumbs, for those of you not in the know) and seared them until cooked thru and crisp. It turned out to be one of those yummy last minute dishes that you can prepare in minutes.

Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo…mmmmm

Creamy Fettuccini Alfredo

I’m a complete sucker for creamy pasta dishes. Don’t get me wrong…the red stuff is awesome too, but the creamy, buttery, fatty sauces? Sign me up, please! Pure comfort :D Here is a great basic alfredo recipe that is stupid easy and minimal on ingredients. The best part of this recipe is that you can make this in about a half hour, great for those short on time. You can add all sorts of vegetables, meats, or seafood to this dish and really make it your own. In other words, go nuts!
