I was surprised at how tasty this was. I followed the recipe exactly. The celery provides a nice crunch against the creamy beans, and the shrimp (which I grilled in their shells) were delicious with it. We had all the fresh herbs in our garden, and I think some of the oregano was actually marjoram (they are right next to each other)--but whatever they were, they were great, and I think any combination of herbs would work. A summer dish!
Grilled Shrimp Skewers over White Bean Salad
From EatingWell: July/August 2010
Fresh herbs make all the difference in this light, summery bean salad that in turn makes an aromatic bed for the easy grilled shrimp. The shrimp and salad are wonderful together but you could also make them separately. Consider skewering and grilling scallops as another delicious option.
8 Reviews for Grilled Shrimp Skewers over White Bean Salad
I really enjoyed this salad and thought the herb proportions were right on. I happened to have larger shrimp on hand and no skewers so I boiled fewer shrimp than what the recipe called for instead of grilling and added them to the bean mixture in the end. Refreshing summer salad that I will definitely make again!
in my opinion the sage over powered the dish. i will try the recipe again but next time i will cut down on the amount of sage or leave it out completely.
