My friend Jane and I have a favorite lunch spot that serves a fantastic salad on Wednesdays. I made my own version at home so I can share it with my family and eat it whenever I want. Save a lot of prep time by buying peeled, deveined shrimp and prewashed lettuce. —Marla Clark, Albuquerque, New Mexico

  • 2 romaine hearts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a large bowl, combine romaine, tomatoes and cheese; refrigerate until serving. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, salt and pepper. Add shrimp, a few pieces at a time, and toss to coat; shake off excess.
  2. In batches, place shrimp in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Turn; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until lightly browned and shrimp turn pink, 2-3 minutes longer. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Drizzle dressing over romaine mixture and toss to coat. Top with shrimp. If desired, sprinkle with additional cheese and pepper; serve immediately.
