Thai Shrimp, Chicken, Grapefruit, and Coconut


1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 teaspoons white sugar
cloves garlic, crushed
1 red grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
2 cups shelled cooked tiny shrimp, thawed if frozen
2 cups shredded precooked chicken breast meat
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut meat, unsweetened
6 shallots, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon chopped red chile pepper
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded


Make the dressing by whisking together the lime juice, fish sauce,  sugar, and garlic in a bowl.

Toss together the sectioned grapefruit, shrimp, chicken breast,  coconut, shallots, chile pepper, mint, and cilantro in a large bowl.  Drizzle approximately 3/4 of the dressing into the grapefruit mixture  and toss to combine. Combine the remaining dressing with the  shredded lettuce in a separate bowl shortly before serving.

Arrange the lettuce on a large platter. Layer the grapefruit mixture  on top of the lettuce.
