I absolutely love summer salads and grilled seafood lunches! A few of my other favorites are Chicken Waldorf Salad, Ahi Tuna Watermelon Salad, and Grilled Peach and Watermelon Burrata Salad.

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s so good I plan on making it again for dinner tonight so my husband gets to try it. I put this together in about 20 minutes, so it’s perfect for busy weeknights. The dressing is DEE-LICIOUS, I used DeLallo’s golden balsamic vinegar, which is made from white grapes rather than red and has a sweetly rich taste – it’s fabulous! They sell it at my local supermarket, or you can buy it online, but if you want to use regular balsamic, that would work fine too.

I love watermelon in my salad, mostly because I’m not much of a tomato lover. Inspired by lunch from Marcus Samuelsson’s restaurant Uptown Brasserie located at the JFK Delta terminal 4. Eating healthier while traveling is getting so much easier these days, a good thing although they also have a Shake Shack which after seeing the calories on the menu, I opted not to try.

Hope you enjoy this salad, I’ll be making this one all summer!

Ingredients

For the dressing:

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine vinegar, water, shallots, salt and pepper.

  • Season shrimp with seasoned salt, then mix in crushed garlic.
  • Thread the shrimp onto the skewers.
  • Light the grill or indoor grill pan on medium to medium-high flame, when hot spray the grates with oil and grill the shrimp about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.

  9. just wondering if you can use other cheeses, besides goat cheese?

  28. Hi Gina!

    I'm just now venturing into the world of seafood, which will be great this summer on Long Island! Do you usually buy your shrimp at the seafood counter? I don't know a thing about buying shrimp/fish!

    Thanks,
    Tricia

  29. old bay on the shrimp would be awesome too

  30. I love DeLallo products and will definitely be on the lookout for this golden balsamic! I'm eager to try this recipe, too! Looks fantastic…great combination!

  31. Yum that looks really good! I love shrimp and i love watermelon 🙂

  32. Oh, sorry, but this sounds not good. Probably because I don't like watermelon.

  33. This salad looks so tasty! I love watermelon with feta in salad, so I'm sure I'd like it with goat cheese. I think I might add spring onion, for an extra kick of flavor.

  34. Hi Gina,
    I came up with 27 points plus for this recipe, which is 7 PP per serving, not 8. Was wondering how you got 8?
    Thanks,
    Marsha

  35. I can't wait to try this recipe! Goat cheese goes so well with watermelon, though I've never tried it with shrimp before. Our website also has a selection of healthy recipes that are great for spring.

  36. This looks wonderful! I actually bought a white balsamic vinegar last weekend that would be perfect for this! Thank you so much for this great recipe miss, would love to give this a try 😀 I hope you have a lovely week 🙂 x

  37. I love this type of salad and have never even thought to add shrimp to it- very exciting. I am going to share with you an amazing Chicken, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Raisin, Apple, Quinoa Recipe as a thank you http://www.inallofhersplendor.com/2014/03/20/the-goddess-quinoa-salad-recipe/

  41. This sounds like a great summer meal. Blessings, Catherine

  42. This looks so good! I had something similar to this at a restaurant and the shrimo was a great touch. I can't wait to have it with the goat cheese!

  43. Looks like a really good dish, I look forward to trying it. Shrimp and watermelon just sounds like such an amazing combination.

  44. It never occurred to me to put grilled shrimp and watermelon together! But it makes so so much sense because they are both amazing summer food. I think I might make this for my next cookout, but I've never had goat cheese… Willing to try it though!
