  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp
  • 1 packet dry Italian dressing mix
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (14-ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 (6-ounce) can large black olives
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • Cook shrimp in boiling water just until they turn pink. This will only take a few minutes. Drain and let cool. Once cool, peel them.
  • Add Italian dressing mix to a large bowl. Add vinegar and oil and whisk.
  • Add shrimp, artichokes, olives, cherry tomatoes, roasted red peppers, red onion, and parsley.
  • Sprinkle feta cheese on top. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. If possible, give everything a stir a few times while it is marinating.


For best flavor, I recommend marinating for 24 hours.
Regular balsamic vinegar can be used instead of white. It will just discolor the ingredients some. Or red wine vinegar can be used.
