  • Heat greased barbecue to medium heat.
  • Combine quinoa, avocados, vegetables and cheese in large bowl. Mix lime juice, oil, honey and 1/4 cup marinade until blended. Add to quinoa mixture; mix lightly.
  • Toss shrimp with remaining marinade; thread onto 4 skewers.
  • Grill shrimp 1 to 2 min. on each side or until shrimp turn pink.
  • Spoon quinoa salad onto 4 plates; top with shrimp.

Variation

To instead cook the shrimp in a skillet, heat remaining marinade in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add (unskewered) shrimp; cook 2 to 3 min. or until shrimp turn pink, stirring frequently. Serve over prepared salad.

Note

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water 30 min. before using to help prevent them from burning on the barbecue.

Variation

Prepare using Cracker Barrel Crumbled Feta Cheese with Oregano, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Black Pepper. Or, omit the cheese altogether - the salad is just as delicious.
