December 28, 2012

Hope everyone has been enjoying their holidays! I'm sure we have all spent the past week indulging in some pretty amazing holiday goodies. After spending Christmas night with long-time friends indulging in Smithfield ham biscuits, a goose meal, and champagne and wine tastings - I am ready for a salad. Today’s recipe kicks off a fun new health centric series: Fuel Your New Year's Resolution that will feature new recipe ideas for healthy eating.

2.5 oz mixed baby greens (about 2 handfuls on each plate)

5 slices of chorizo cut quarterly

Dressing Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
2 small slices of lime squeezed
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
Salt & Pepper

Place desired amount of lettuce, sliced cucumbers and sliced tomatoes on a plate a set aside. Mix olive oil, lime juice, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper in a small dished and whisk together.

Peel and devein shrimp. Heat stove top to medium heat and add olive oil to the pan. Sear shrimp for about 3 minutes a side. Add chorizo during last 3 minutes. Add cooked shrimp and chorizo to the salad. Drizzle desired dressing and serve with lime wedges.
