Sometimes you gotta big time your salads. Sure you could serve your date up a simple green salad. But unless you’re following it up with some bodacious entrée, that date of yours will lose interest long before dessert. And that’s if they don’t fall asleep face-first in your uninspired salad. That is why I went all big pimpin’ with this salad. The hot Chiquita bonita I had over wanted something slamming that would not be expanding her sexy backside. Aye yi, la Capitan! The result: our expectations (her appetite; my libido) were surpassed. I might as well have been drinking Chardonnay out of a pimp chalice with the Cook To Bang logo written in diamonds.
Total time: approximately 20 minutes
Projected cost: $8
Drinking Buddy: White wine or a MO MOJO MOJITO
Ingredients (serves 2):
1. 1 dash BBQ seasoning
2. 2 tbsp BBQ sauce
3. 1 tbsp CALIVIRGIN olive oil
4. 1 tsp red wine vinegar
5. ½ AVOCADO sliced thinly
6. 1 tomato chopped coarsely
7. 2 massive handfuls lettuce
8. 1 handful medium-sized raw SHRIMP
9. 1 green onion chopped coarsely
10. 1 small handful cilantro chopped coarsely
Create the BBQ dressing by mixing together 1 tbsp BBQ sauce, red wine vinegar, ½ tbsp olive oil, and BBQ seasoning.
Combine the lettuce, tomato, avocado and BBQ dressing and toss your salad.
Marinate the shrimp with green onions, cilantro and the remaining BBQ sauce (approx 10 min). Heat up the oil and sauté the shrimp until they pinken and the marinade congeals. Serve over the salad and hot damn!
This salad works perfectly as a solo standout or a wingman to some HOT LIQUID LOVE.
I just found your blog through the choice awards site. Very good. And that’s a great header.
Now that’s my kind of food!
