SOLE Challenge: Broccoli and Shrimp Salad

This summer salad will cool you down on hot, hot days.

It’s great having a larger garden this year—I have so many more fun things to choose from (assuming I get to them before the [swear word] beetles do). We pulled up the last of our broccoli, and I wanted to do something with it a little more exciting than just steaming it, although I really love steamed broccoli. It was so bloody hot outside that I thought a nice cold salad would be the ticket.

Salad with Veggie Crisps and Basic Dressing Recipe

Sit down and get ready…I’m posting a vegetarian/vegan recipe. I’m almost as surprised as you are. Except I have been working on reducing the amount of animal protein I eat recently. Call it a by-product of my studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I will never eliminate meat entirely (I’ve a got a dedicated freezer for it, by gosh). But I don’t need to eat as much as I’ve been in the habit of doing.
