Crab and Shrimp Seafood Cobb Salad

The vinaigrette salad dressing yields one cup, more than you'll need for these salads. Reserve the rest of the dressing for other uses like pasta salad, as a marinade for chicken, and of course, for future salads.

  • 6 cups sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 pound bay shrimp
  • 1/4 pound snow crab meat
