Buffalo Grilled Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip

Yumm!  Last nite I made these EASY and delicious shrimp.  Perfect as an appetizer or a main dish.  They are spicy but cool down when you dunk them into the blue cheese dip.  What’s really nice is that they are not fried.  I ADORE anything fried but I can always handle a few less calories.   I served them with a baked potato and brussels sprouts with buttered pecans.  Everything was good, but the shrimp were the major winners!  Shrimp always win in my book though.  These would be great for your Super Bowl celebration.  Let me know if you think they are as delicious as I do!  TIP: Use refrigerated Blue Cheese Dressing to make this really EASY.
