Caribbean Grilled Scallop Salad

Boston lettuce has a mild taste and tender texture. Rinse it gently, pat dry and refrigerate with moistened paper towels until ready to assemble salad. (Total time: 16 mins.)This is a very nice and pretty salad dish. Cooking Light Magazine, August/05. Making of the salad included in prep time -- not cooling time. Update 06/19/2008 - after making this again I tweaked it a bit; the first thing I did was used a rub that I used for another dish - Spicy Grilled Shrimp Rolls With Creole Spicy Paste which added quite a kick! Also, I was remiss about including Emeril's Creole Seasoning Beef Tenderloin W/2 Sauces: Horseradish & Creole Mustard number. Also, used a vinaigrette that I had for another salad and added more of the mango chutney!!!:)

I made this from Cooking Light's web site. The first time it seemed rather bland, so the next time I made it I added a small amount of garlic to the dressing and added chopped red onion to the salad...was delicious! Think I will also try it with a teriyaki dressing.

This is a very nice and tasty salad. I do think the dressing could use some tweaking. As directed each of the four servings would only have a tablespoon of dressing...not enough for me. The grilled pineapple, scallops and avocado are a great combo, so it is worth experimenting with. Made for My Three Chefs game.
