It’s a scary time in the world right now. Romaine lettuce has been recalled and most recently the same has happened to ground beef. Can we eat anything anymore? Well fear not, DCDishes is here with an alternative. Funny how when you’re told you can’t eat romaine or ground beef, you suddenly want a cheeseburger and a Caesar salad. Instead, I indulged myself with a delicious Sheet Pan Roasted Shrimp and Veggie Salad. This delectable dish combined with a tasty chili lime vinegarette surprised my taste buds and satisfied my need for greens!

The roasted vegetables with seasonings really made this salad. I’m totally on the roasted veggie train after this dish! When shopping for my greens of choice I was bombarded with warnings about the recent romaine recall. It was pretty aggressive but I appreciated the constant warning and reminders. Truth be told, I had my eye on arugula and spinach the entire time. They provided the perfect base for the roasted vegetables to shine on. Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the vinegarette I will admit. I had tripled the original recipe and  I was not liking it at all. That was until I put in on top of the salad. Wow. It complimented the seasoning on the veggies and the shrimp perfectly. Suddenly I couldn’t get enough!

I’ve found most of my meals tend to disregard greens and vegetables. I have made a concerted effort to change that lately. Paying attention to recalls especially when it comes to food I consume is important to me, as it should be with everyone. I’m a sucker for a good Caesar salad, but when these recalls come up I love finding new ways to soothe my cravings. Shrimp, greens, and veggies have never tasted so good!
