Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb frozen large raw shrimp (31-40 shrimp per pound)  thawed and peeled (and deveined, if needed) dried well with a paper towel
  • 1/2 cup citrus or italian vinaigrette  homemade or store-bought
  • metal or wooden skewers (soaked, if using wooden)
  • 1 pint organic grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, cut into 4 thick chunks
  • 1 head organic iceberg lettuce sliced horizontally into 4 slices, core removed
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • ground black pepper to taste

For serving

  • balsamic glaze
  • lemon wedges

Instructions
 

  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Clean and oil grill grates.
  • Place shrimp and vinaigrette in a resealable plastic bag. Let shrimp marinate for 10-15 minutes. 
  • Thread shrimp onto metal skewers (or wooden skewers that you’ve soaked in water for 30 minutes.) Discard marinade. Thread tomatoes onto additional skewers. 
  • Place shrimp, tomatoes and red onion on the grill. Grill shrimp, tomatoes and red onion over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until shrimp just turns opaque and is cooked through (grilling time will vary depending on the size of the shrimp). Remove from grill.
  • Assemble four salads by placing a slice of iceberg on a plate, topping with red onion, tomatoes and shrimp. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, blue cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serve with lemon wedges.
