Shrimp And Papaya Salad With Greek Yogurt Dressing

This is such a simple and refreshing salad.  The Greek yogurt salad dressing includes the wonderful flavors of lemon and honey and a touch of poppy seeds, a perfect marriage with the sweetness of the red papaya and subtle taste of the steamed shrimp.  Serves 2

Of course, start with the freshest ingredients.  I just love the colors and aromas of the fresh papaya and strawberries.  
That red onion was definitely on the attack, so I only diced a little of it.

Pile the papaya, strawberries and red onions on a bed of lettuce of your choice.  
Add the steamed shrimp.  Then drip the delicately tangy dressing over all of it.
