1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons (1/2 oz) shelled, chopped pistachios
1 1/2 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled

Place shrimp in a bowl and stir in 1/4 cup of Blueberry Mojito Dressing. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-low heat, and spray grates with nonstick spray.

Toss baby spinach, blueberries, cucumber red onion, and pistachios in a large bowl. Drizzle on the remaining 1/4 cup dressing and toss to coat.

Thread the shrimp onto metal skewers and place on the grill. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until opaque. Remove the shrimp from grill and keep warm.

Divide the salad among serving plates and top with the crumbled goat cheese. Remove the shrimp from the skewers and place half of them on each salad.
