"This is the tastiest shrimp salad without any guilt: only a trace of oil makes it perfect for serving any dieter. If you want to feel healthy, but enjoy your food, this is the salad for you. You may want to garnish with additional green onions and chopped peanuts, but I find that placing the shrimp on the top is garnish enough."
The eggplant is the only really optional ingredient here. I add it for it's lovely sweet and smoky flavor that lends itself well to a delicate salad like this. It isn't necessary though and can be substituted with additional greens or roasted sweet potatoes in its place.
This can also be an appetizer, though it is more of a luncheon salad/main entree.
Grapeseed oil can be used in place of the canola oil, if desired.
