A medley of shrimp, asparagus, and red pepper served on a bed of lettuce becomes a colorful main-dish salad. It tastes best served chilled.
Fill medium saucepan two-thirds with water; bring to a boil. Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes or until just firm. With slotted spoon, remove. Return water to a boil. In same saucepan, cook asparagus 2 minutes or until just tender. Drain; rinse asparagus and shrimp with cold water.
In large bowl, combine shrimp, asparagus, red pepper, celery and scallions. In small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, tarragon, lemon rind, lemon juice, salt and cayenne. Add to shrimp mixture; toss to evenly coat shrimp. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 20 minutes. Serve on lettuce leaves. Makes 4 servings.
