  1. Heat a grill to medium-high heat or have a ridged grill pan ready. For vinaigrette, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Transfer 3 tablespoons of the mixture to a pie plate or shallow plate. Stir pepper flakes and garlic into oil mixture on plate.
  2. (Sneak a quick dip of artisan bread into the mixture - so good!)
  3. Add shrimp to plate; toss with oil mixture. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers or soaked bamboo skewers. Brush oil mixture from plate over skewers. Transfer skewers to grill; discard marinade on plate. Add pineapple to grill. Grill shrimp and pineapple (or cook shrimp in a heated ridged grill pan over medium heat and grill pineapple in pan after shrimp is removed) 4 minutes. Turn skewers and pineapple over; continue grilling 4 to 5 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.
  4. Meanwhile, toss mixed greens with remaining vinaigrette; arrange on four large serving plates. Carve pineapple crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices; arrange over salads. Remove shrimp from skewers; arrange over salads. Top with basil.

Very good. The flavors complemented each other quite well, and the prep was minimal.

We ended up pan grilling the shrimp and pineapple and it was still exceptional. The dressing is very simple to make and worked well with the pineapple and shrimp. I added a little Cajun seasonin...

I added bow tie pasta, cucumber, sweet peppers and it was awesome! Would make this again, easily. With crusty bread and some wine, a nice summer meal for entertaining.

For me, the dressing was too mustard and kind of ordinary. I think the shrimp needed some zing also. The pineapple was juicy and delicious.
