Store croutons in a resealable plastic bag at room temperature; cooked chicken covered in refrigerator; washed lettuce in a large bowl with paper towels in refrigerator; and salad dressing, covered, in refrigerator.
Using light mayonnaise and lime juice in the dressing considerably reduces the calories and fat in this salad. Chili powder adds spice to the shrimp and chip croutons. This recipe is featured in the "Everyday Food: Light" book.
Freshly made or store-bought, carrot juice is packed with beta-carotene, iron, and potassium and adds health benefits to this salad dressing. In recipes, use it in place of other liquids to make sauces, quick breads, and more.
