Use a combination of yellow and red beets to make this protein-rich salad a feast for the eyes, too. The poaching liquid cooks the shrimp at a low heat to prevent a rubbery texture.

Excellent, husband made it for our anniversary dinner! He scored! He has declared it a 'keeper'!
Rating: 5 stars
This is a light, but filling, meal - great for summer dining. It was more substantial with the roasted beets and the potatoes were a pleasant surprise in a salad. I threw in fresh herbs from my garden in the water to cook the potatoes and then the shrimp. My husband was a little leery when he saw me slicing the beets, but admitted that they were a great add. It needed no other dressing, which keeps things light. We will definitely have this again
