PREPARE hot fire in charcoal grill or preheat gas grill to high.
TOSS shrimp with 1 tablespoon oil in medium bowl.
THREAD shrimp on skewers. Place directly over heat and cook until pink, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat; slide shrimp off skewers onto plate.
WHISK together orange juice and zest, vinegar, remaining 3 tablespoons oil, honey, mint, salt and pepper in small bowl.
DIVIDE greens among 4 plates. Top with tomatoes, croutons and shrimp. Drizzle each with one fourth of dressing. Top with cheese.
The orange mint dressing really makes this a special salad. I like to heat things up and would use Pepper Jack or even the 50% Light Pepper Jack. Nice meal to toss together during hot summer nights, and the shrimp cooks on the grill quickly and the salad is refreshing.
