In other words, the best salad ever.
Monday worthy. You know I'm not a big fan of trying to erase the weekend's pitfalls with salads and quinoa on Mondays, but thiiiiis salad we can make work. It also kind of reminds me of something I'd make at the beach, which kind of reminds me of spring break, which makes me wish so. bad. that I worked in a school-based setting and could have spring break. And summers off. And Christmas off.
You get it.
This salad, though! It's a really lemony dressing, over baby kale. Kind of like spinach but heartier, not like reg kale in case you hate that. Then it's the super quickest sweet and sour pickled shallots. Or onions if you don't have a shallot, whatevs. Then smoky and spicy and salty shrimp crusted in parmesan, which means the cheese gets toasty and almost burnt but intentionally so and is there ANYTHING better than almost burnt but intentionally so cheese?
No, no there isn't, is the answer you're looking for.
