makes: 4 servings (2½ cups each)

Preparation time : 30 minutes 

Ingredients : 
- 12 ounces fresh or frozen medium shrimp in shells
- ½ teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
- 3 oranges
- Orange juice (optional)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or salad oil
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
- ¼ cup sliced green onions (2)

Preparation Method :
1) Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. In a large saucepan bring 4 cups water to boiling. Add shrimp; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Drain in a colander. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Transfer shrimp to a bowl. Add orange peel and the 2 tablespoons orange juice; toss gently to coat.

2) In a medium saucepan cook asparagus, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain in a colander. Rinse with cold water; drain again.

3) Peel oranges. Working over a bowl, cut oranges into sections; reserve 1⁄3 cup of the juice. (If necessary, add additional orange juice to make 1⁄3 cup.) For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together the 1⁄3 cup orange juice, the oil, vinegar, garlic, tarragon, pepper, and salt.

4) In a large bowl combine shrimp, asparagus, orange sections, greens, and green onions. Pour dressing over all; toss gently to coat. To serve, divide salad among four serving plates.
