Shrimp, Strawberry, and Feta Salad

Hot summer days call for refreshing, yet satisfying dinners. We have been in a salad mood at our house and trying to come up with new combinations. My husband made an amazing steak salad for lunch Sunday so I tried to top that with this creation.

The savory roasted shrimp and crumbled feta balance out the sweetness of the fresh strawberries.

I like the Olde Thompson Fish and Seafood Seasoning to give the shrimp plenty of flavor. You can find it at most grocery stores. I bought this at Target.

Chopped shallots add flavor to the easy vinaigrette.

Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a little salt and pepper round out the vinaigrette.

I use feta a lot. It is rich and creamy.

This is a perfect dinner for a hot summer night. Cheers to August!

  • About 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Olive oil to coat shrimp
  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries

  • Toss as much raw, peeled, and deveined shrimp as you like in olive oil and season. I used Olde Thompson Fish and Seafood Seasoning, available at Target.
  • Roast at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette: Whisk together a tablespoon of chopped shallot, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of water, 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, and a little salt and pepper.

  • When shrimp is cooked and cools for a minute, arrange it on the salad.
