  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  1. In small bowl, toss onion with 1 tablespoon of vinaigrette; set aside.
  2. Over grill or in pan on stove top, grill shrimp 5 minutes, turning once, or until pink and cooked through.
  3. In another bowl, toss strawberries with 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette.
  4. In large bowl, toss greens and onion with enough of the remaining vinaigrette to coat lightly.
