Sweet and Spicy Summer Salad

Summer may be winding down, but there is still time to make the most of all the gorgeous, fresh, local and seasonal produce that's at your fingertips. My philosophy is that you can mix any combination of fruits and veggies together in a bowl—the more colourful the better!—and it will taste amazing. The other night I tossed this sweet and spicy number together.



Fresh or frozen shrimp, peeled, deveined and defrosted
Your favourite hot sauce
Mixed greens
Bell pepper, sliced or diced
Radish, sliced
Cucumber, sliced or diced
Carrots, diced
Cantaloupe, cubed
Olive oil
Fresh lemon juice

Sautee the shrimp in your favourite hot sauce until cooked through and set aside. Combine the lettuce, veggies and cantaloupe in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and top with sea salt and pepper to taste. Toss and serve onto plates. Top with spicy shrimp.
