Summer Salad with Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple in Champagne Vinaigrette Recipe Reviews - (Pg. 1)

I was looking for something light, healthy and refreshing after last night's gut bomb NFL Playoffs Smorgasbord. This was exactly what I was after and what I thought we really needed but I must say I never expected to enjoy it as much as I did. Truth be told, if health and poundage weren't issues I'd much prefer gut bombs - I'm not a big fan of "cold and crunchy" as a rule, nor does the idea of fruit in my salad, particularly with meat, appeal to me. But I was willing to give it a try - for the sake of doing our bodies good. Surprise! We liked it! What a perfectly compatible array of ingredients! Not only was this light, healthy and refreshing, it was delicious, something I'd expect from an upscale restaurant here in SW Florida. I made no changes except to use Romaine and to add some cucumber, which fit in with this salad well. I was tempted to omit the basil and I'm glad I didn't - it was surprisingly good with the pineapple and shrimp. As for the fruit/savory combo, at least given this salad anyway, I am a convert.

Very good. The flavors complemented each other quite well, and the prep was minimal.
