Default Salad. Share one of yours

I've been thinking about salads lately. I love veggies and salads, but I am so dressing picky, and the few dressings I actually like, they really add on the calories. I've seen people used aged crumbly cheeses instead, so I thought I'd try it. I bought fully-cooked frozen shrimp, lettuce mixes, veggies, and gorgonzola cheese. I'd never tried that cheese, but I'd heard good things.

Lastnight I thought I'd mix it up. I thawed the shrimp; then put them on my little grilly machine (like a George's grill, but a different brand), sprinkled a sea salt-garlic-parsley mix on it, then grilled it a few minutes. Then I crumbled half a serving of gorgonzola on my greens (I chose a mix with carrots and raddish shavings), then placed the shrimp on it. After that I grinded fresh pepper on it. It was actually really enjoyable, and had very little calories - it can be made with under 200 cals.

Here's my salad (before I put ground pepper on it) :

So what concoctions have you all come up with?
