S is for Grilled Shrimp and Palm Beach Salad

Shrimp are one of my favorite foods in the world, if you haven't noticed from my restaurant orders. I love shrimp any way you can cook them. Recently, I paired grilled shrimp with one of my favorite salads. I call it Palm Beach Salad for a couple of reasons. First it has hearts of palm as one of the ingredients. Second, the salad has a beautiful, citrusy dressing that reminds me of the beach. When I put shrimp on the salad, the beachy theme is complete. 

The salad starts with crunchy romaine. Then I throw in some sliced carrots, sliced hearts of palm, sunflower seeds, toasted pine nuts, and a sprinkle of Salad Pizzazz Orange Cranberry Almondine. 

Mix together the following ingredients, shake well and drizzle over salad. 

2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon  Dijon Mustard
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
