What better topper for salad greens than grilled shrimp?

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Dash salt
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 lb uncooked deveined peeled large shrimp
1/2 bag (10-oz size) American blend mixed salad greens
1/4 yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1/4 cup sliced halved cucumber
1/4 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup shredded or shaved fresh Parmesan cheese
2 Pillsbury® Oven Baked frozen garlic dinner rolls

1 . Heat gas grill or coals. In medium bowl, mix all Marinade/Dressing ingredients. Reserve half of the mixture for dressing. Using remaining for marinade, add shrimp, tossing to coat. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes.
2 . When ready to grill, remove shrimp from marinade; reserve marinade. Thread shrimp onto four 12-inch metal skewers; place on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning and brushing once with marinade, until shrimp are pink. To heat dinner rolls, place rolls in foil on grill; cook 6 to 7 minutes or until hot.
3 . In large bowl, gently toss all Salad ingredients and the reserved dressing. Divide between 2 serving plates. Top salads with shrimp. Serve with dinner rolls.

To broil shrimp, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat, using grilling times above as a guide, turning and brushing once with marinade.

Again you can go without the rolls.
