Grilled Shrimp Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

I cannot believe that it is almost September, that is craziness! Where did the first half of the year go?

With fall right around the corner, that means grilling season is coming to a close for most of you. {in the northern states that is}  So I thought I would throw in a couple more grilling recipes while you can still do it! 🙂 {so thoughtful I know.. hehe}  This one was inspired because, well, shrimp was on sale last week.  But, Mike and I are also big fans of grilled shrimp. 

What Type Of Marinade Is Used For These Grilled Shrimp?

I normally marinade it in a white wine garlic herb mixture, but this time I was feeling a southwestern inspired marinade.  So I ended up going with a Chipotle Lime Marinade, then turned it into a healthy shrimp salad and added some tex-mex veggies along with a Honey Lime Vinaigrette.  All I have to say is, it’s perfection in one bite and super easy to make!

Speaking of super easy to make.  Did you see my most recent post?  If not, you definitely need to take a look at it. Tons of awesome quick 30 minute meals.
