  • 1 1/2 teaspoons TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce

  • 18 large shrimp (about 3/4 pound), peeled and deveined
  • 4 ounces country ham, julienned
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and julienned
  • 1 medium-size yellow bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced

Combine all dressing ingredients in a food processor; process until mixture is thoroughly blended, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl.

Combine shrimp, ham, carrot, bell pepper, and onion; set aside. Arrange red leaf lettuce on 6 large plates. Arrange chicory and mixed lettuces on top.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat until lightly smoking. Add shrimp and vegetable mixture. Sauté, stirring frequently, just until shrimp is cooked through, 3 to 3 1/2 minutes. Add dressing. Toss mixture to combine all ingredients and heat 20 to 30 seconds. Spoon shrimp mixture and dressing evenly over prepared greens. Serve immediately.
