Blackened Shrimp Salad
- Grill shrimp: Preheat a grill to medium high heat. Thaw the shrimp (if frozen). Marinate the shrimp by placing in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and blackening season. Add the shrimp to skewers. Place them on the grill and allow to cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until bright pink and cooked through.
- Make Dressing: Add in the shallot, olive oil, Dijon mustard vinegar, lemon juice and orange juice to a high speed blender. Blend on high speed 20 seconds. Pour the dressing into a jar and add in the salt, pepper, basil, oregano and chives. Mix together with a spoon until combined.
- Assemble: To assemble the salad fill three bowls with mixed greens of choice. Top with avocado, cherry tomatoes, red and green onions, cucumbers and a shrimp skewer.
- Serve: Drizzle with my homemade Citrus Herb Dressing and enjoy!
