Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time 4-6 minutes | Serves: 4


  • 1 large cucumber, sliced lengthwise on the diagonal, seeds removed
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ cup Kalamata olives
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tablespoon grape seed oil

1. Prepare salad: toss all vegetables, olives, and avocado chunks in a medium-sized salad bowl. Set aside.

2. Prepare dressing: Mix all dressing ingredients except for oil in a small bowl. Stream in oil and whisk until combined. Season with black pepper for taste.

3. Heat a grill pan or a medium-sized skillet with 1 tablespoon of grape seed oil over medium-high heat.

4. Season shrimp with sea salt and pepper. Add shrimp to pan and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn opaque and pink.

5. Meanwhile, add the dressing to the salad and toss to coat.

6. Divide greens between 4 bowls. Place about 1 cup of chopped, dressed salad in each bowl. Top with grilled shrimp and garnish with parsley.
