Shrimp is one of the best sources of selenium, a mineral that boosts the immune system. Serve these whimsical skewers with Citrusy Edamame and brown rice.

|6 2-inch strips orange bell pepper||1 to 2 tablespoons reduced-fat vinaigrette salad dressing|
|12 medium peeled and deveined uncooked shrimp||12 cucumber slivers|
Soak six 8-inch wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Push a pepper strip into the center of each and cut two slits near the top. Place a shrimp on each side, as shown. Snip off the skewer’s pointy ends if serving to young kids.
Brush shrimp and peppers with vinaigrette and grill on a greased rack over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once. When cool enough to handle, add small strips of cucumber to slits for the butterfly’s antennae. Makes 6 skewers.
