8 Reviews for Grilled Shrimp Skewers over White Bean Salad


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!


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.
