We call this one an end-of-summer salad, but as long as you can get the ingredients, you can make it in any season! Citrus flavors define the salad: A homemade Citrus Vinaigrette and orange slices as toppings give this dish its summery flair, but fresh bay scallops skewered and grilled steal the show.

Pro tip: Do not overcook the scallops—they’ll become tough and rubbery if left on the grill for too long.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high (about 450°F). Soak sliced onion in ice water to cover for 10 minutes; drain well.

Step 2

Place scallops, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl, and toss until scallops are evenly coated.

Step 3

Thread scallops onto the skewers (5 or 6 scallops per skewer). Grill the scallops until grill marks appear, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side. (Overcooking the scallops will make them tough and rubbery.) Transfer skewers to a platter, and drizzle with 1/4 cup of the Citrus Vinaigrette.

Step 4

Toss together the lettuce, radishes, red onion, and remaining 1/4 cup Citrus Vinaigrette in a large bowl. Divide the salad among four plates, and top each salad with two skewers of the grilled scallops. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, and serve with orange segments.

This was very easy to pull together and very good.  I served a corn on the cob with citrus butter alongside and all was great!
