Ingredients

Citrus Strawberry Dressing

  • 1 Shallot minced
  • 1/2 cup champagne vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 4 strawberries
    chopped
  • 1 tbsp Honey
    or sugar alternative of choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Grilled Shrimp Nectarine Summer Salad

  • 1.5 pounds Shrimp
    large shells removed, heads removed and veins removed
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
    to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
    (optional)
  • 3 Nectarines
    washed and sliced, remove pit- keep skin on
  • 2 cups Romaine lettuce
    chopped
  • 2 cups Rocket
    (arugula)
  • 1 cup Strawberries washed and sliced
  • toasted nuts of choice or Chinese Fried Noodles or other crunchy toppings as desired (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat grill or BBQ.
  • Make citrus strawberry vinaigrette – in a food processor or blender add shallots, vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, 3-4 strawberries, honey or sugar alternative and salt and pepper of choice. Set aside. Makes about 1 cup of dressing so you will have extra.
  • In a bowl or individual plates add the romaine lettuce, rocket (arugula) and strawberries.
  • Toss thawed shrimp in olive oil, salt and pepper (or Mrs. Dash) and garlic powder and place on grill (or stove top grill pan) for about 2 minutes each side until no longer translucent and pink . Remove from grill and set aside.
  • Spray nectarines with a little oil or brush with a little olive oil so they do not stick on the grill. Grill nectarines for about 1-2 minutes on each side, just until you get nice grill marks. Remove from grill.
  • Place grilled shrimp and grilled nectarines on top of salad with strawberries. Drizzle with a little lemon strawberry vinaigrette and top with a few Chinese fried noodles or toasted almonds if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

You can prepare all the ingredients and just grill before your guests arrive. Toss with salad dressing just before serving.
