Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of grapeseed or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced or 1 TBS garlic paste
  • 2 TBS Greek seasoning divided (see notes)
  • 1/2 pound of large shrimp raw (21-25 count)
  • 1 large zucchini or 2 smaller ones
  • 5 cups of Salad greens
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives halved
  • 1/2 cup green olives halved or cut into thirds
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup crumbled Treasure Cave Feta cheese divided

Instructions

  • In a bowl combine oil, garlic and 1 TBS of the Greek seasoning and mix until incorporated (you can also use a strongly flavored Greek salad dressing for this).
  • Oil 4-5 metal skewers.
  • Peel your shrimp, removing the tails and skewer 5-6 per skewer (don't "mash" them together, just allow the shrimp to touch).
  • Wash zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch or a little thicker rounds and skewer each zucchini so they are flat.
  • Pour about 1 1/2- 2 TBS of your oil mixture into a small ramekin and use that to brush your shrimp and your zucchini liberally on both sides. If you used Greek seasoning to make the mixture, shake a bit additional onto the shrimp and zucchini.
  • Clean & oil your grill and then heat to high. Place zucchini on first and grill for 3 minutes. Place shrimp on the grill.
  • Turn Zucchini over after its been on the grill 4 minutes total. Shrimp should take about 6-8 minutes total to cook (turning once halfway). Zucchini should take 7-9 minutes to cook. Cook time will depend on the size and thickness of your shrimp/zucchini), so eyeball them closely.
  • Toss your greens, olives, tomatoes and 3/4 cup of the feta with your remaining oil mixture/dressing 9or as much you enjoy).
  • With a minute to go on the grill, sprinkle 1/4 cup of Treasure Cave Feta Cheese onto your zucchini and shrimp, close the lid for 60 seconds, then remove.
  • Choose to place skewers as they are atop the greens or arrange them similar to what I did in the photos and enjoy!
