Recipe by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
"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."

This was so good and easy. Like the previous reviewer, I used romaine. I tossed the shrimp in a resealable bag with olive oil, sea salt, and lemon pepper, and then I cooked it in a grill pan. The lemon pepper really added to the flavor (I omitted the sugar). Plus, I used tomato-basil feta and fresh oregano--yum! This is a definite keeper. Next time, I'll try adding sun-dried tomatoes.
Made this for a date over the summer... we both really love greek salads so it's a little hard to impress us! Next time I'll add red onion, use a combination of spinach and romaine, and maybe add in some artichoke hearts to make it even more greek! Overall it was good, I used frozen Shrimp which I made on my George Forman really quickly. Really liked the dressing for the salad, very complimentary, not overpowering.
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. It had some green chiles in it which added a good kick to the salad. 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.
this has to be the best salad i've ever had. i used already-cooked shrimp and just added everything to it it a bowl. i only used 2 tbs. oil over all. SO GOOD!!!!!
Whipped this up tonight with frozen bag of pre cooked shrip, green olives and black olives, added a few more vegetables like mushrooms, (didn't have cucumbers). Impressive and dressing recipie was great, needed quite a bit of kosher salt sprinkled over it after tossing, to bring out flavors. Yummmy. I will make again, with what ever I have available for produce.
It was too cold to grill, so I tossed the shrimp with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted them at 400 degrees for 6 minutes. I also added a teaspoon of minced garlic to the shrimp mixture for more flavor. Great served with pita crackers and hummus.
Quick recipe, tasty. I also used romaine and it turned out wonderfully!
Awesome recipe. I tried putting the shrimp in a bag with the olive oil, lemon pepper and sea salt and omitting the sugar as suggested by a reviewer before skewering. The shrimp tasted good enough to eat alone without everything else, but together it was fabulous.
