MAKES 4 SERVING/ TOTAL TIME 30 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

½ cup chopped fresh parsley

⅓ cup chopped scallions

⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese

3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

⅓ cup canola oil plus 1 tablespoon, divided

1 pound raw shrimp (21-25 count), peeled and deveined

24 mini bell peppers (15 ounces)

1 small red onion, cut into quarters

1 (10 ounce) package coleslaw mix (with carrots and red cabbage)

1 ½ cups pita chips, crushed

METHOD


STEP 1

Preheat grill to medium-high.  Place parsley, scallions, feta, vinegar and 1/3 cup oil in a mini food processor; blend until mostly smooth. Set aside. Thread 3 shrimp and 3 mini peppers on each of 8 bamboo skewers. Brush the kebabs and onion with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Grill the kebabs until the shrimp turn pink and are opaque in the center and the peppers are lightly charred, about 3 minutes per side. Grill the onion wedges until slightly softened and charred, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill.

STEP 2

Reserve 1/4 cup of the dressing. Combine slaw mix, pita chips and the remaining dressing in a large bowl. When the onion is cool enough to handle, thinly slice and toss with the slaw mixture. Serve the slaw and kebabs with the reserved dressing.
