Shrimp-and-Green Bean Salad Grilled

 

  • 8  (12-inch) wooden skewers
  • 1 1/2  pounds  fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2  pounds  peeled, medium-size raw shrimp
  • Basil Vinaigrette, divided
  • 6  cooked bacon slices, crumbled
  • 1 1/3  cups  shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4  cup  chopped roasted, salted almonds
  • Cornbread (optional)

Preparation

1. Soak wooden skewers in water to cover 30 minutes.

2. Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 4 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain, pat dry, and place in a large bowl.

3. Combine shrimp and 3/4 cup Basil Vinaigrette in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and chill 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove shrimp from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread shrimp onto skewers.

4. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 2 minutes on each side or just until shrimp turn pink. Remove shrimp from skewers; toss with green beans, bacon, Parmesan cheese, almonds, and remaining 3/4 cup Basil Vinaigrette. Serve over hot cornbread, if desired.
