Foodie Friday (just a little early!)

I know that tomorrow is technically Friday ;)  but I made this last week and couldn't wait any longer to share it with you!  It was healthy and delicious!

Another one of my Make It Tonight dinners from Fine Cooking. This was a spinach salad with shrimp, avocado, oranges and pistachios. The Scotch in the upper left hand corner was strictly for the cook, not part of the recipe!

Brought a pot of water to a boil, salted it lightly and added the shrimp until they were just barely pink.

Put the spinach in a big stainless bowl with the sectioned oranges (I used Cuties that I had on hand) and the cubed avocado, then tossed it with -- you guessed it if you've been reading this very long, the Girard's Light Champagne dressing that I use on practically everything salad-like.

After the salad was plated, a sprinkling of the shelled pistachios (Dan did all the shelling while he was drinking his scotch -- we all have our chores around here) finished it up. The blending of the tastes was excellent, the dish was easy and quick to make, and I would definitely make this again!
