Greek-Style Shrimp Salad on a Bed of Baby Spinach14 Reviews
“Grilled shrimp and Greek flavorings (tomato, feta, Kalamata olives, oregano) commingle in a this salad. Thread the shrimp onto skewers, and so they'll grill up moist yet attractively spotty brown, sprinkle them with a little sugar when seasoning them with salt and pepper.” - by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Thread shrimp onto metal skewers (or bamboo ones that have been soaked in water for 15 minutes). Brush both sides with oil and season with salt, pepper and a light sprinkling of sugar.
- Heat gas grill, with all burners on high, until fully preheated, 10 to 15 minutes. Use a wire brush to clean grill rack, then brush lightly with oil. Close lid and allow to return to temperature. Grill shrimp until fully cooked and spotty brown, about 2 minutes per side.
- Meanwhile, mix in a medium bowl the tomatoes, cheese, olives, oregano, 2 Tbs. of the olive oil and 2 tsps. of the vinegar. Unthread shrimp and add to bowl. Lightly toss ingredients to coat. Set aside. (Can be made an hour or so ahead.)
- When ready to serve, drizzle remaining oil, as well as a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper, over spinach in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Add remaining 2 tsps. vinegar; toss again. Divide spinach among 4 large plates. Top with a portion of the shrimp mixture.

"Perfect for a quick and healthy meal. To make it more "greek" I used romaine lettuce. I was in a hurry so instead of dicing tomatoes, I just used a can of diced tomatoes.

I only had a small amount of shrimp because I was only making the salad for myself so I just tossed it on the George Foreman grill... it was ready in about a minute."
