Feel free to use grilled chicken breasts instead of shrimp for this Mexican salad. Cilantro, lime juice, and pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds) boost the flavor in this dish, while blended buttermilk and avocado create a thick, creamy dressing without adding extra fat. This recipe makes extra dressing, which can be refrigerated up to three days -- use it on other salads or as a sauce for grilled chicken or shrimp.
This is a perfect way to use up leftover salmon fillets, but canned salmon can be substituted. Cooked salmon fillets are chopped and combined with mustard, capers, and lemon juice for extra flavor. Serve with your favorite crackers and fresh vegetables, such as carrot sticks, radishes, broccoli florets, and lettuce cups.
This fresh-tasting pasta salad features shrimp, large pasta shells, dill, and sliced cucumber. The dressing is made with light mayonnaise accented with mustard. To keep the texture and flavor of this salad at its best, toss the pasta mixture and dressing together right before serving.
