Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

To make salad: In small bowl, toss onion with 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette; set aside. Over gas or charcoal grill or in grill pan on stove top, grill shrimp 5 minutes, turning once, or until pink and cooked through. In another small bowl, toss strawberries with 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette. In large bowl, toss greens and onion with enough of the remaining vinaigrette to coat lightly. Divide among 4 chilled salad plates and arrange strawberries and shrimp on top of greens. Sprinkle with cheese and garnish with slices of cucumber and avocado, equally divided.

To make vinaigrette: In small bowl, whisk together ingredients for vinaigrette.

Tips: For a variation, substitute shredded smoked chicken for the shrimp. Pre-cooked, shelled shrimp may be substituted for grilled shrimp.
