A fruity dressing zip drapes this zippy salad from Jackie Pressinger of Stuart, Florida. Served on a bed of greens, the scrumptious combination of grilled seafood, veggies and macadamia nuts is the perfect way to celebrate a special summer occasion.
“This recipe is similar to a barbecue shrimp dish I love at a restaurant in Florida,” writes Sandy Lutz from North Canton, Ohio. “I serve it as an entree with brown rice and a salad, but it could work as an appetizer, too.”
Mango, ginger and curry combine with a splash of lime juice to coat this juicy, grilled shrimp. Stuffed in pitas, the shrimp combo makes for an easy-to-hold, fabulous entree! You could also serve on a bed of rice for a less casual presentation. —Beverly O'Ferrall, Linkwood, Maryland
