Mothers Day Recipes and Cooking Activities for KidsFruit Salad with Warm Shrimp

When heating the salad dressing in the skillet do not let it boil. Boiling the dressing will cause it to become too hot. When poured over the salad it will cook the fruit and lettuce causing them to wilt. It will also cause the dressing to separate. Canned watercress, drained may be used instead of fresh if you prefer.
