Cook's Notes

Shrimp can be a little chewy, especially if they've been frozen. Slice them in half lengthwise against the grain, and they'll have a more tender texture.

    One of the best, most original, recipes I have made. I have used this as a go-to recipe for years. It is easy, quick, can be served cold so is perfect for potlocks/bbqs, and also is healthy! I have used both grape and cherry tomatoes and sometimes sub different types of lettuce depending on what I have on hand. The cumin dressing is so great and really makes this dish!
