    Default My favorite shrimp & veggies dish- super easy to make!

    This is a really awesome recipe that my mom modified from a Southern Living recipe. I love it! Its a great summer dish. You can also half the recipe if you're only making it for yourself.

    2 lb jumbo fresh shrimp (also works with frozen shrimp)
    (or recipe will work with 3 lb)
    1 lemon
    2 large red bell peppers
    2 large green peppers
    1/2 large red onion

    12 oz (about 1 and 1/2 bottles) Kraft Zesty Italian dressing
    + 1/4 cup light olive oil
    + 1/4 cup good balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
    1 clove fresh garlic, pressed

    Peel and clean shrimp; grill or saute and place in large bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over the shrimp. Cut peppers and onions into large pieces; grill or saute- you just want to soften up the veggies a bit, don't cook them until they are mushy. Then add to the shrimp in large bowl.

    Now make the marinade:
    Press or chop garlic and parsley. Add to salad dressing, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

    Pour the marinade over the shrimp and veggies, stir to mix and coat shrimp, cover & chill 8 hrs. or overnight.

    The dish is awesome after marinating for even 3 hours, but 8 hours makes it better. I like to serve it cold, but its also awesome heated up.

    Sounds like it would go great heated over some brown rice. I'm throwing in some broccoli and fresh 'shrooms too. Yum.
