Greek Salad with Shrimp

Simple yet substantial. You can buy the lettuce already torn and the feta crumbled. (Try different feta flavors, like basil-tomato, black pepper, garlic- herb, and Mediterranean.) Also, most supermarkets will shell shrimp for a charge, saving you time and effort. Stop at the fish counter first so the shrimp can be cleaned while you shop. (If you’re really pressed, have them steam the shrimp too.)
