Spicy Thai Shrimp Salad

I threw this salad together yesterday and just happened to have all of the perfect ingredients in the fridge. I also didn't measure anything (intuitive cooking!) and it turned out perfectly, so hopefully I can estimate the amounts correctly so that it can be duplicated!

For the salad:
4 cups fresh spinach
2 cups red cabbage
1 carrot
1/2 green pepper
1/4 purple onion
2 green onions
3-4 mushrooms
1 avocado
*Chop it all up and put into two good-sized salad bowls

For the shrimp:
Enough shrimp for two people (it depends on the people!)
1 tbs toasted sesame oil
1 tbs tamari
1 tsp fish sauce
Sriracha chili sauce- however much you want
*Saute it all up until the shrimp are done (I used frozen and thawed, precooked shrimp, so this didn't take very long)

For the dressing:
3 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 tbsp tamari
juice from 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
*Put it all in a jar and shake it up

Add the shrimp and dressing to your salad and ENJOY!
