This tropical Cobb salad trades the usual ingredients for shrimp and fruit with a citrus dressing for a delicious and refreshing light supper!


  • 1 pound of small to medium shrimp, peeled
  • Juice from 2 oranges (about 1/3 cup or so)
  • Juice from one lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small head of romaine lettuce, rinsed and torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ cup chopped cashews


  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, add the shrimp, and simmer until they are cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Drain and run cold water over them until they are cool.
  2. Make the dressing: put the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil and pepper in a small jar and shake shake shake until mixed. Set aside.
  3. Divide the lettuce among four plates. Put the shrimp in a line down the middle of each plate, and put lines of pineapple, mango, tomatoes and cheese on the side.
  4. Drizzle dressing over the top, sprinkle with cashews and serve!
