Grilled Shrimp Quinoa Bowl

I love shrimp. Trevor does not. He kinda feels the way about shrimp that I do about mushrooms (read more about that here). So, I don’t make shrimp that often. But when I do, it has to be good.

So tonight, I’m making a simple grilled shrimp quinoa bowl using leftover quinoa, leftover corn-on-the-cob, tomatoes from the farmers market over the weekend, greens from our garden and the easiest grilled shrimp you’ll ever make. Oh, there’s some yummy feta sprinkled on there too, along with some Green Goddess dressing. Yum!

It’s an easy summer bowl you can make any night of the week. Let me know what you think!
