As the weather starts to heat up, people can sometimes learn towards lighter fare that can be enjoyed on the back patio. A fresh salad incorporating lots of ripe fruit is an excellent choice — especially when some BBQ flair is mixed into the equation. We think we've created an awesome recipe that will provide lots of summertime enjoyment and deliciousness. Pairing the salad with some of our rosé of Pinot Noir wouldn't be a bad idea either. Just sayin'. ;)
Prep (30 minutes)
In two separate bowls, shred and divide Romaine lettuce. Divide evenly the strawberries, mandarin wedges, and avocado. Season shrimp w/paprika, pepper flakes, onion and garlic powder. Drizzle with olive oil. Grill shrimp and sausage and let them cool. From the mango, cut thin slices and add to salad. Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper for dressing. Mix well and apply based on preference. Add sliced sausage, shrimp and sprinkle with pine nuts. Enjoy!
