Shrimp & Raspberry Salad

Share on Tumblr

Recipe By Chef Jim Coleman

Raspberries take a starring role in this easy to make salad. If shrimp is too pricey, substitute poached sliced chicken breast.


  • 12 ounces fresh asparagus spears
  • The kernels from one fresh ear of corn
  • 12 Belgium endive leaves
  • 6 canned or frozen artichoke hearts, cut into quarters
  • 12 sorrel leaves
  • 1 pound peeled and de-veined shrimp, cooked and chilled
  • 2 cups of fresh raspberries
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup of raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoons of honey


    1. Snap off and discard the woody part, the base of the asparagus. Cook the asparagus in boiling water for about 4 to 8 minutes, or until crispy and tender, then drain and cool immediately.
    2. Prepare Vinaigrette: Blend vinegar with cilantro, honey and slowly whisk in olive oil until well combined. Take half of the dressing and toss it with the shrimp, raspberries, corn and artichoke hearts.
    3. Arrange the greens and the asparagus on four (4) dinner plates and top with the corn and shrimp mixture and serve with the remaining dressing.

Note: If you can’t find sorrel, substitute raddiccio leaves, or prepackaged lettuce mix.

Reminder: The ingredients in a recipe determine if it should be eaten every day, some days, or on special occasions. It's up to you and you doctor to determine what can be part of a healthy diet for you and any special needs you may have.

High Tunnel farming caught my eye because its extended growing season adds to the amount of local produce we get. While farm manager Aviva Asher was tidying up the winter crop to make way for spring, I discovered another benefit of local growing: use what you’ve got.
