BBQ Shrimp Salad

Notes: Grilled shrimp on a bread salad – inspiration from Italian panzanilla

Shrimp

1# shrimp, cleaned and deveined
1 Tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. EVOO

1. Marinate with lemon, garlic and olive oil.
2. Grill Shrimp.
3. Grill bread at same time.

Bread

2 slices of crusty artisan bread

1. Drizzle with olive oil.
2. Salt and pepper.

Salad Ingredients

4 c. mixed greens
½ c. parsley leaves
¼ c. red onions, slivered
½ c. basil leaves
¼ c. black olives
Parmesan, freshly grated

1. Toss together in large bowl.

Tomato Vinaigrette

1 Tbsp. balsamic or champagne vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
½ c. basil, chiffonade
1 c. heirloom tomatoes diced or cherry tomatoes quartered
1 c. fresh mozzarella – cubed or ½ c. feta cheese (optional)
Salt & Pepper
