Berry Good Shrimp Salad

What a beautiful salad for a nice Spring meal.  I bought what looked fresh and pretty on the day I made it.  The balsamic vinaigrette recipe follows this one.  It is easy to make and so good with this salad.
I used yellow cherry tomatoes and blackberries this meal.
  • Baby Greens
  • 3 lbs. of fresh jumbo shrimp
  • 1 T. Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning
  • ½ of a Vidalia onion
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pint of blackberries or raspberries
  • 6 boiled eggs
  • 8 oz. of crumbled feta cheese
  • Balsamic vinaigrette
  1. Boil eggs, then peel and cut them into circles with an egg slicer
  2. Rinse the berries
  3. Cut the onion into thinly sliced semi-circles
  4. Cut the cherry tomatoes into halves
  5. Grill the shrimp, that have been seasoned with Creole Seasoning, for about 2 - 3 minutes on each side on medium-high heat in a grill pan
  6. Toss the greens, tomatoes, onions, and berries with about ¾ C. of dressing
  7. Divide evenly to six plates
  8. Top each with sprinkles of cheese, 1 egg, and 5 – 6 shrimp
  9. Serve the vinaigrette on the table for those who like additional dressing
Tips and Tricks:
