Grilled Shrimp Mediterranean Salad

Summer has arrived…in March you say?

Well it sure does feel like summer, sunny & 75 degrees everyday, makes your brain confused and one starts to daydream about barbeques, salads, refreshing drinks, etc. I happen to love salads all year long but especially in the summer when you can add grilled ingredients to enhance the flavors.

Grilled Shrimp Mediterranean Salad  is a quick & easy recipe. I used my outdoor grill to grill the bell peppers, eggplant, & shrimp but you can certainly use a grill pan to achieve the same effect. Marinade for the shrimp and vegetables was simply freshly squeezed lemon juice, fresh oregano, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt & freshly ground pepper.

Crunchy raw vegetables like sliced baby seedless cucumbers, chopped red onions, cherry tomatoes mixed with the grilled eggplant and bell peppers combined give this salad a unique taste. Grilled chicken or salmon would be a great accompaniment to the Mediterranean salad.  Last but not least crumbled feta or goat cheese make a tasty creamy garnish for this salad.

I adore grilled shrimp; although I must admit to eating them hot off the grill. However, if I can convince our family to wait, this salad looks perfect for the lovely weather we are having right now. Thank you

You are right about the weather — though i am excited about the eating possibilities, I am least joy about the scorching summer in Florida.

But am definitely excited of this yummy-ness! Give me some of those salad :)

What a beautiful salad and this is something I’m looking forward to in this still cold March in SF. I can’t wait till we have warm weather. We finally got sun back, but still very cold. I love how colors and textures played in this gorgeous salad. It’s my first time at your blog and fully enjoyed browsing around. :-)

Maureen @ Orgasmic Chef March 24, 2012 at 8:20 am

I love visiting your blog, just to see your photo up in the corner. That is the most sultry photo I’ve seen on a food blog. With my blog name I need to look like you. :) (sadly I don’t LOL)

This salad is one I will enjoy making again and again – it’s beautiful. Aussies always throw shrimp on the barbie. heh

(actually not, we call them prawns, but we do like them on the bbq)

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen March 24, 2012 at 9:16 am

This is the kind of salad I could easily eat all summer, fresh and crunchy.

Sara Hafiz March 24, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Thank you everyone!

Gourmantine March 24, 2012 at 11:27 pm
