Grilled shrimp, slices of avocado, shaved fennel and oranges are served over baby kale and mixed greens then topped with a citrus vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  • 2 navel oranges (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined (weight after peeled))
  • 4 cups fresh arugula or baby greens
  • 1 cup 1⁄2 small bulb fresh fennel, thinly sliced or shaved w/ mandoline
  • 1 medium-size ripe Hass avocado (sliced thin)

For the vinaigrette:

  • 1 large navel orange (peeled and squeezed)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp minced shallots
  • kosher salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Combine the orange juice from one of the oranges, lemon juice, olive oil, shallots, kosher salt and pepper in a container with a tight-fitting lid and shake it vigorously to combine.
  • Reserve 1⁄2 cup of the vinaigrette for dressing the salad and pour the remaining vinaigrette into a medium nonreactive bowl.
  • Put the shrimp in the bowl, season with salt and pepper and toss; let it sit for about 30 minutes.
  • Prepare your outdoor grill, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • Grill the shrimp until just cooked through and opaque, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  • Divide the baby greens on four plates, top with sliced fennel, oranges, avocados and shrimp.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette, about 2 tbsp per salad.
