About a month ago, we had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Not one of our typical dining spots, but I had one of the best salads EVER there! It was a seared Ahi tuna salad over greens and an awesome soy-based dressing.Meanwhile, I chopped up some red bell pepper, shelled some edemame, and shredded a couple of carrots. I piled those on some mixed greens.
Well, I think I have come close to recreating the dressing. Haven't tried searing tuna yet, but that's on the calendar for this weekend!
It started with the dressing recipe I found online. It was the first recipe I looked at, what luck! :Soy-Ginger Vinegarette
Since I didn't have tuna on hand, I used some frozen, peeled, deveined frozen shrimp. I thawed them out and marinated them in some of the dressing for 45min.
Then, I used some spray oil, and cooked the shrimp for a few minutes on each side. The splatters are from the marinade, which has oil in it, so you probably don't even need to spray your non-stick pan.
Add shrimp to greens, drizzle dressing, enjoy! Soooooooo goood!
I also found some chinese sweet buns in the freezer (I am in the process of cleaning out the freezer because we are moving at the end of the month)
