8-10 pcs. boiled shrimps

I loved my salad dressing. I think this is my favorite. I am excited to let my friends and Ate taste my concoction. I have to serve this during lunch so I can grill pork and perhaps make Tom Yung soup, if that is the case, won't add shrimps anymore to my salad.
The perfect bite.
I was able to buy my favorite Sunsweet Green Lollo!!!! I wanted to buy several heads but the guy from the vegetables section of Rustan's Rockwell said the lettuce will only be fresh for 3 days. It is really so hard to find this variety. Every time I ask the people from the vegetable section of supermarkets(Landmark, SM or Metro Gaisano), they would give me Green Ice which look so much different from the leaves of Green Lollo.
I was also looking for cashews for my Thai Salad but I didn't want to buy the packed cashews. I opted to buy the raw peanuts and just roasted them in my oven.
There are still so many salad and dressing recipes out there.... I want to experiment and find out which are my favorites.
