Shrimp on Cucumber and Orange Salad
The combination of the protein and iodine-rich shrimp with the vitamin C-packed, citrus fuits yields a dish that is as nutritious as it is delicous. Olive oil also provides valuable, unsaturated fatty acids.
If you're not in the mood to fire up your grill, this recipe can be easily prepared in a skillet.
