Grilled Shrimp Salad with Cilantro Mint Dressing

organic girl butter plus

I am a summertime girl.  I like hot weather, I like being outside any time I can & I love swimming.  I also love days that dinner involves the grill because it  generally means less indoor clean up.  It also means I can usually coerce my family into eating outside, which could lead to an evening swim.  It all works out really well.  

You know what else works amazing?!? These shrimp & this dressing on Organic Girl's new true❤️hearts butter plus lettuce.  It's a mixture of pre-washed, organic red & green butter lettuce that has as much iron as a serving of spinach! Say What?!?

There's no doubt that summertime is made for salad but I believe it's also made for the grill & these shrimp too!

Grilled Shrimp Salad with Cilantro Mint Dressing


 1 pound shrimp, peeled & deveined

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoon orange juice

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon each salt & pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 recipe cilantro mint dressing

1-2 containers organic girl butter plus salad mix

preheat outdoor grill to 600

In a medium size bowl, whisk together olive oil, orange juice, dijon, oregano, salt, pepper & garlic powder together.  place shrimp in bowl & toss to coat.

let shrimp marinade for about 10 minutes while you mix up the salad dressing. 

thread shrimp onto skewers {make sure to soak in water if using wood} & grill for about 3 minutes per side.

divide salad mix among plates & garnish as desired, place hot shrimp skewers on top of organic girl, butter plus greens & drizzle with cilantro mint dressing.


Love, Cara
