5 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream

3 tablespoons grapeseed oil or extra-virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1 tablespoon minced shallot

2 cloves garlic, minced

¾ teaspoon dry mustard

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1 pound raw shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste

2 ears corn, husked4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

¾ cup finely chopped red cabbage

¾ cup diced red bell pepper

½ cup diced red onion

½ cup assorted cherry tomatoes, chopped

½ fennel bulb, halved again, thinly sliced1 avocado, diced

2 slices crispy cooked bacon, diced

To prepare dressing: Puree the dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. To prepare shrimp & salad: Preheat grill to medium or heat a grill pan over medium heat. Toss shrimp with 2 teaspoons oil, lime zest, salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until slightly charred, 6 to 10 minutes. Grill the shrimp, turning once, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes total. Transfer corn and shrimp to a cutting board. Cut the kernels off the cob. Chop the shrimp into bite-size pieces. Combine lettuce, cabbage, bell pepper, onion, tomatoes, fennel, avocado and bacon in a large bowl. Add the shrimp, corn and dressing; toss to coat. Season with pepper.

DIY grill basket: It’s best to use a grill basket when grilling small ingredients so they don’t fall into the fire. If you don’t have one, fold a 24-inch-long piece of heavy-duty foil in half and crimp up the edges to create a lip; this “basket” will prevent the food from sliding off the grates.
