Serves 4 (serving size: 2 cups)

This salad comes together quickly and takes advantage of fresh spring asparagus and watercress. The dressing pulls double-duty as a sauce to cook the shrimp in and to dress the greens. Look for shrimp not treated with sodium triphosphate (STP) if you are watching your salt intake.
