Shrimp, Watermelon, and Feta Salad

Author: Anita's Table Talk

Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 drops hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Salad

  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined (I grill them)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, finely sliced (divided)
  • 4 cups seedless watermelon cubes
  • 4 cups arugula/spinach mix
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  • COMBINE the olive oil, lime juice, honey, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • ADD the cooked shrimp, red onion and half of the mint to the bowl and TOSS to combine.
  • ADD the watermelon and TOSS gently to combine.
  • PLACE spinach and arugula on a serving plate or individual salad plates. TOP the greens with shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with feta and the rest of the mint on top of the salad.
  • NOTE: This salad tastes good without the shrimp, too.
