Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Creamy Cilantro Sauce

This is a simple, tasty meal that's great during grilling season (which happens to be year round at my house).

2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (I use the frozen kind from Wal-Mart)

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Dash red pepper

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the cilantro, oil, chives and garlic. Add the shrimp; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

To make the sauce:
In a blender, combine the sauce ingredients; cover and process until blended. Chill until serving.

Thread shrimp onto four metal or soaked wooden skewers. Grill covered, over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink. Serve with sauce.

Makes 4 servings
