Shrimp And Papaya Salad With Greek Yogurt Dressing

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.


Plate 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.


The Recipe:

Salad Ingredients:

  • Shrimps, cleaned and precooked, preferably wild caught shrimps or 31-40 ct, about 12 shrimps
  • Red papaya, 1 cup cubed
  • Red onion, 1/4 cup diced
  • Strawberries, 8 large ones cut into quarters

Pile salad ingredients on a bed of lettuce and add a lemon wedge.

Salad dressing

  • Greek yogurt, 1 cup
  • Honey (wildflower), 2 Tablespoons
  • Orange juice, 1 Tablespoon, fresh or natural 
  • Fresh lemon juice, 3-1/2 Tablespoons
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon poppy seeds (optional)

For salad dressing, combine ingredients.  Gently stir until well mixed.  Yields 1 cup of dressing.
