Thai Shrimp Salad $12.19

Tonight we welcome back after a (long or short, depending on appreciation for the Olympics) hiatus ... The Biggest Loser.  Both Barbara and I DO NOT MISS this show.  Here we record it and watch it starting at 8:20...never call and be a spoiler - that's not funny!  Barbara on the other hand schedules nearly everything around TBL... including her food - so, logically, we star another Jillian special in tonight's dinner spot.

Thai Shrimp Salad
8 cups mixed greens lettuce $1.49
12 ounces precooked shrimp, thawed $2.99
about 4 cups red bell pepper $1.99
about 4 cups carrots .89
about 4 cups chopped cucumbers.99
bean sprouts (if desired)
1 package snow pea pods $3.29
1 ounce peanuts.20
4 Tbsp natural peanut butter .15
6 tsp soy sauce .20

Total $12.19
whisk peanut butter and soy sauce together.  slowly stir in enough water to make "sauce" the consistency you desire for a salad topping (you may need as much as 1/4 cup).

chop peppers, carrots & cucumbers
Put salad greens on four plates - divide everything equally - including shrimp and 1/4 ounce chopped peanuts and soy/peanut sauce mixture.

that's it!  Enjoy! 
if you used a full cup of the red bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, bean sprouts, and peapods along with the shrimp and peanuts/pb/soy per the recipe, then you're enjoying:
416 calories
13 grams fat
46 grams carbs
17 grams of dietary fiber
36 grams of protein.

Folks... that's a meal!  No need for bread ... and it's like sixteen servings of veggies in one day (ok, really, it's 5 servings of veggies - maybe more).
