Serves 4


The salad

  • 1 lb. Little Potato Company Something Blue Creamer potatoes (other varietals can be used)
  • 1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled & deveined (tails removed)
  • 3 tsp olive oil, divided
  • ¼ tsp + 1/8 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp + 1/8 tsp ground pepper, divided
  • 6 cups baby spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup minced cilantro
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ½ cup diced cucumber

The dressing

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp agave nectar
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper


The salad:

  1. Place 4 wooden skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.
  2. Place the Creamer potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and set over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are just tender when pierced with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes. (If using a different Creamer potato varietal, cooking time may need to be adjusted.)
  3. Drain the potatoes. Once cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and toss in a bowl with 2 tsp olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Lightly coat the grates with oil.
  5. In a separate bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  6. Remove the wooden skewers from the water and thread the shrimp onto the skewers.
  7. Grill the shrimp until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from the skewers.
  8. Grill the potatoes until they have golden brown grill marks, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  9. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cilantro, shrimp, potatoes, red bell pepper and cucumber. Toss with the dressing. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve.

The dressing:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange and lemon juices, olive oil, agave, salt and pepper.
