I took a day off blogging on Friday, but I did spend some time at the produce market getting all the ingredients for this awesome summer salad. Although it required a lot of chopping, it was fairly easy to make. From start to finish it took about a half hour which seemed pretty quick, perhaps because I wasn’t the one standing in front of the hot grill! Here is one batch of the grilled items:
I followed the recipe pretty closely, although I used smaller shrimp which were on sale, and substituted thinly sliced turkey breast for those who preferred that over shrimp. I made my own tortilla strips by slicing whole wheat tortillas and cooking the strips in the oven at 400F for 10 minutes on a baking sheet.
I served the dressing on the side, as Giada suggested, so that the leftovers could be easily kept for the next day. This was a fabulous meal, and I will definitely make it again!
