WEEKDAY MEAL WEDNESDAY… SHRIMP AND CORN SALAD WITH CHIPOTLE LIME DRESSING

Must Try

During the craziness of the move we kind of lost track of eating well and turned to eating for convenience.  So in the next few weeks before our vacation, we’ve been on a healthy eating kick including daily runs checking out the new neighborhood.  Btw, it’s not fair that Odin can run with us for 45 minutes and not even be tired winded.  This is another salad adapted from Catherine Walthers Raising the Salad Bar.  If you don’t have this book already, you need to go out and buy it now.  The recipe is super easy and the dressing is kind of like a spicy margarita!! Yummm.
