The Resistance Salad

Inspired by X-Wing Starfighter(s)

Prep: 10 min. / Cook: 3 min.

Makes: 4 servings


16 large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 DOLE® Bananas, peeled, each banana cut into 4 even portions
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 rounded teaspoon curry powder
2 cups DOLE Baby Spinach
2 cups DOLE Baby Arugula
1 cup DOLE Pineapple, finely diced
2 tablespoons dried cherries
2 tablespoons pistachio nuts
8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 10 minutes before using


Preheat grill to medium.

Thread four shrimp onto four skewers. Thread 1 banana half onto each of the other four skewers. Lightly dust each skewer with Old Bay seasoning.

Place each skewer on the grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until the shrimp is cooked and the bananas are charred.

Combine mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, and curry in a small bowl. Whisk to blend. Brush each skewer with dressing.

Combine spinach, arugula, pineapple, cherries, and pistachios in a large bowl. Pour remaining dressing over and toss gently to combine.

Top salads with one banana skewer and one shrimp skewer, crossing over each other as if dueling.
