Grilled Shrimp Salad with Rice Pilaf

This salad is one of my favorites for summer. As I have mentioned I grew up with a mother that cooked all of the time, and this is one of her recipes that has stuck with me and I hope that you enjoy it too!!!

Cherry Tomatoes
Kalamata Olives
Feta Cheese
Rice Pilaf
Lemon Juice

First get the rice pilaf cooking since it takes 20-25 minutes which is the same amount of time the remainder of the meal will take.
Next cut up cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta cheese and place in a bowl.
Slice up the peppers to be grilled with shrimp.
Next add shrimp and peppers to grill pan to cook.
Once the peppers are cooked, cut them up and add to bowl with remainder of the salad. 
Toss the salad with dressing of EVOO and lemon juice. You do not need to heavily dress this salad as the vegetables have a ton of flavor.
Once the rice pilaf is cooked add a spoonful to the middle of a plate and top with salad and grilled shrimp.
