Directions

  1. Prepare the salad dressing by whisking together the pineapple juice, orange juice, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Brush the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Place the spinach leaves, mango, macadamia nuts, and banana chips into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Heat the shrimp in the skillet on both sides until just warm in the center, about 1 minute per side.
  3. To assemble the salads, drizzle the spinach mixture with the salad dressing, and toss until evenly combined. Divide onto four plates. Divide the warm shrimp among the plates, and top with goat cheese. This way the goat cheese will melt down a little from the warmth of the grilled shrimp. Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes to serve.

This was tasty! I did not add the banana chips, but everything else is the same. It made a great dinner on a hot day!

This salad was okay. I probably had higher expectations of it than I should have. I love goat cheese and coconut and the combination intrgued me. A salad bite without goat cheese had very little flavor to it.

This salad was delicious. It was light, but yet filling. Our guests barely touched the other dishes. I cannot wait to make it again.
