We decided to have dinner outdoors since it was actually a cool day, so I decided to make a nice and easy salad with some grilled margarita shrimp, then added a spicy jalapeno cilantro dressing. It was to die for!

I decided to go with shrimp since it’s my favorite protein to cook up when I’m having a lazy dinner night. It defrosts quick, cooks quick, and is delicious no matter how you make it. Especially when you turn it into something special like margarita shrimp!

This grilled margarita shrimp has a kick to it with a little jalapeno and cayenne pepper, it’s great alone, but even better as a salad! I used the Southwestern Crunch Salad mix from Taylor Farms, to save some more time and this salad is perfect for the flavor profile of the margarita shrimp!grilled-margarita-shrimp-salad-spicy-ranch-2-2

The textures from Romaine, Cabbage, Carrots, Cilantro and Green Onions in the Southwest Crunch Salad combined with the margarita shrimp is amazing and is like having a shrimp taco without the tortilla!

I love that Taylor Farms is a sustainable health conscious company,  but you know what I love about them even more than that? The salads come pre-washed!

I don’t know about you, but I am a horrible salad washer. I can’t ever seem to get it dry enough. So taking their salad from container to table without washing is a huge bonus and time saver for me.

So to give this salad a little kick on top of the margarita shrimp, I added a quick and easy jalapeno cilantro dressing using Ranch dressing as a base. It adds a little heat and freshness at the same time.Grilled Margarita shrimp on a Southwestern Crunch Salad mix from Taylor Farms.

If you happen to have any leftovers from the margarita shrimp salad, this will make an amazing wrap for the next day. Just go grab some spinach tortilla wraps, add more dressing and you’re good to go for lunch!

That is, if you have any left over.tyf_logo
