Barbecue Shrimp Salad with Grilled Corn and Vidalia Onions

Barbecue Shrimp Salad with Grilled Corn and Vidalia Onions

Summer is here! Well, officially summer doesn’t begin until the 21st but I’m a teacher so as far as I’m concerned if school is out, summer is upon us! Summer means several things to me, though, in addition to the end of the school year. It also means barbecues with friends and families and light meals filled with fresh local ingredients. Here in Georgia, our summer favorites are corn, cucumbers, shrimp, and Vidalia onions. I’ve combined these favorites to bring you a delicious yet simple salad full of those southern flavors: Barbecue Shrimp Salad.
