Note: This recipe appears in the South Beach Diet Taste of Summer Cookbook. Who doesn't love a crisp and refreshing Caesar Salad every now and then? South Beach has done it again with a new twist on a classic twist. The flavors of lemon, olive oil and garlic make your taste buds pop along with the grilled shrimp and crabmeat. You don't need to add salt to this dish because the anchovies are already salty and add salt to the dish. This salad will also fill you up and leave you satisfied. This salad can be enjoyed anytime of the year but it's great on a warm evening if you don't want to cook.
