Make the salad: In a large bowl combine the 6 salad vegetables. Make the dressing: In a bowl whisk together the 6 salad dressing vegetables. Spray a large skillet set over moderately high heat with some vegetable oil and heat until hot. Add the shrimp and cook, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until just cooked.
