Grape, Goat Cheese & Walnut Salad with Shrimp

Grape, Goat Cheese & Walnut Salad with Shrimp

Serves: 1

There were some very large, crunchy green grapes at the grocery store the other day and I couldn’t resist picking up a bag of them! They were absolutely delicious! They give an amazing sweetness to this salad that pairs ever so well with the goat cheese and walnuts!! It takes me back to Napa when I would be eating small cheese plates with fresh fruit and nuts for lunch! Only thing I was missing was a nice glass of wine!

Fit Ingredients

  • 3 cups (64g) arugula
  • 1/2 c (75g) grapes, sliced
  • 1/2 oz (14g) chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 c (62g) fat free, low sodium Calabro ricotta cheese (or more goat cheese)
  • 1 oz goat cheese
  • 3 oz (85g) shrimp, peeled
  • 2 tbs raspberry wine vinegar ( I used this one)
  • white pepper
  • salt, optional


In a large salad bowl (this makes a fairly big salad), put your arugula, sliced grapes, chopped walnuts and ricotta cheese. Next, heat a non stick pan over medium heat. Sprinkle white pepper (and salt, if using) over your shrimp and place in the pan for 2 minutes. Flip your shrimp and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and add to your salad. Crumble your goat cheese over your salad and top with 2 tbs of raspberry wine vinegar.

Quick, simple, light, fruity and refreshing! Perfect meal on those hot and humid summer (or spring, in this case) evenings!!

*If you wanted to keep your house completely cool, fire up your grill to cook your shrimp! They would taste even better that way!
