Summer Salad Of Melon, Feta And Shrimp

In the Pantry Challenge video series, Lauren Braun Costello, a chef, author and food stylist, shows busy moms how to make tasty, healthy meals using ingredients they already have in their pantries or fridge, solving their unique cooking challenges.

In this video, Lauren helps Peggy S., a busy mother of four and registered nurse, make a restaurant-style meal at home. Even a simple salad can look elegant and taste exceptional, when the right colors and textures are combined. Lauren shows Peggy the importance of careful layering, for both visual interest and an assortment of flavors and textures in every bite. In this salad, the sweet, juicy, smooth melons are in sharp contrast to the chewy shrimp, and the whole lot is topped in a salty, creamy, crumbly Feta cheese.
