I am all about quick and simple meals for my family.
And this shrimp Caesar salad fits the bill perfectly since it can be made in 10 minutes or less!
I take a couple of shortcuts in this recipe that you may or may not want to take.
For me, they make life simpler and maintain a delicious meal.
First up, I used bagged frozen shrimp that you can find in the freezer section of your grocery store.
The frozen shrimp can be added directly to your boiling water saving thaw time.
You could substitute grilled chicken for the shrimp or use no meat at all.
Next, I use bagged spinach from the produce section.
Open the bag, put in the bowl… its a no brainer for me!
