How to make it

  • Prepare grill (medium-high heat).
  • **Set aside 2 garlic cloves for bread slices.
  • Place remaining garlic on double layer of heavy-duty foil; drizzle 3 tablespoons olive oil over. Fold up and seal packet. Place directly on grill rack and cook until garlic is very tender and golden, about 30 minutes. Open packet; cool garlic.
  • Toss shrimp (in shells) and 1 tablespoon oil in medium bowl to coat; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Combine plum tomatoes, green onions, sweet onion, both bell peppers, and 2 tablespoons oil in large bowl; toss to coat.
  • Arrange cucumber halves and bread slices on baking sheet; brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle all vegetables with salt and pepper.
  • Grill shrimp until just opaque, about 2 1/2 minutes per side; transfer to another bowl and cool.
  • Grill vegetables until crisp-tender, turning frequently, about 3 minutes for plum tomatoes and green onions, 5 minutes for cucumbers, and 15 minutes for sweet onion and bell peppers. Transfer to large rimmed baking sheet.
  • Grill bread slices until just beginning to crisp and grill marks appear, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Rub bread with reserved garlic cloves, then discard garlic cloves.
  • Peel shrimp; transfer to large bowl.
  • Cut all vegetables and bread into 1/2- to 3/4-inch pieces; add to shrimp along with any accumulated juices. Stir in grilled garlic cloves and grape tomatoes.
  • ~~~~
  • To make Dressing: Whisk vinegar, hot pepper sauce, and remaining 4 tablespoons oil in small bowl; pour over salad and toss to coat. (Can be made 1 1/2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)
  • Stir thinly sliced basil into salad.
  • Season salad to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges.
  • *NOTE: Look for deveined shrimp — fresh or frozen — with the shells still intact. They're much easier to peel after grilling.

    This sounds delicious with the shrimp! I make a gazpacho with raw vegetables and run half of it thru the food processor, then add a shot of Absolut Peppar Vodka per serving... It's Absolut-ely addictive. In fact, I think I'll post it! :)
