Blueberry Vinaigrette:

1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)

1/2 teaspoon dried ground basil

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1/4 cup Steen’s cane vinegar

1/4 cup pecan oil

1/2 cup blueberries

2 cloves garlic

 

Strawberry, Shrimp, Feta Salad:

3/4 pound shrimp

1/3 cup sliced red onion

2 cups strawberries, sliced

8 cup mixed salad greens

2 ounces feta cheese

1 cucumber, raw, peeled

 

 

To prepare vinaigrette, measure all ingredients into a bowl. Whisk together for approximately 1 minute to blend thoroughly. Pour into a glass jar or bottle and refrigerate until ready to use. Shake before serving.

 

To prepare salad, use a gas or charcoal grill (or a grill pan on the stovetop) to grill shrimp. Grill shrimp for 5 minutes, turning once, until pink and cooked through.

 

In a small bowl, toss onion with 1 tablespoon of vinaigrette. In another small bowl, toss strawberries with 1 tablespoon of vinaigrette.

In a large bowl, combine onion and greens with remaining vinaigrette to coat lightly; toss to mix.

Divide greens among 4 chilled salad plates. Arrange strawberries and shrimp on top of greens. Sprinkle with cheese and garnish with cucumber slices.
