How to Make Kale White Bean Salad with Shrimp

Let’s Get Cooking: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Yum

  1. Marinate the Shrimp: Combine those peeled and deveined shrimp with the minced garlic, a splash of lemon juice, a pinch of sea salt, a sprinkle of paprika, and a grind of black pepper. Let them get cozy and marinated for about 15 minutes. This is where the magic starts.
  2. Pan-Fry the Shrimp: Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high. Toss in the marinated shrimp and cook until pink and slightly crispy, about 2-3 minutes each side. Though we love the idea of grilled shrimp, pan-frying offers a delicious and easy alternative.
  3. Salad Time: In a large bowl, toss your kale (make sure it’s washed and chopped, stems are no-gos here) with the white beans, onion slices, feta cheese. It’s like throwing a party in a bowl and everyone’s invited.
  4. Whisk It Good: In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, EVOO, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup. This dressing is the liquid gold that’ll tie all your flavors together.
  5. Dress and Impress: Drizzle that homemade dressing over your kale mixture and toss until every leaf and bean is glistening with flavor. The anticipation builds…
  6. Top It Off: Lay those plump shrimp and feta cheese on top of your salad like the crowning jewels they are. This is the moment where it all comes together.
  7. Serve & Enjoy: Grab a fork (or two, if you’re feeling generous) and dive into the layers of texture and taste. Each bite is a symphony of flavors!
