Bruschetta with Grilled Shrimp & Sweet Basil Mustard submitted by Karen Johnson
Great recipe!

Marinate shrimp with thyme, pepper, and 1/4 c. olive oil. Skewer shrimp (2 on each skewer), cover with foil, and keep refrigerated until ready to cook. In a blender, puree basil leaves with 1/3 c. olive oil, Dijon mustard, & honey until mixture is light green & smooth. Cut tomatoes in 1/2" cubes. Coarsely chop onions & basil. Combine tomatoes, onions, & chopped basil in large bowl; season mixture with balsamic vinegar, 1 c. olive oil, salt, & pepper. Brush bread slices with 1/4 c. olive oil & grill until brown on both sides. Rub with garlic cloves & put on a serving plate. Toss watercress or arugula with 1/2 of the sweet basil-mustard mixture & put on top of the bread slices. Arrange tomato salad on top of the bread slices. Salt shrimp lightly & barbecue. Arrange 2 shrimp on top of each slice of bread, & drizzle the remaining sweet basil mixture on top of the shrimp.
