This shrimp salad with home-made avocado dressing has to be one of my all-time favorites! There’s something so special and incredibly delicious about the flavor combination of this super easy salad! It’s refreshing and crunchy and sweet and creamy all at the same time. If you love shrimp and seafood salads, this recipe is a must try!
I start by making my own, home-made creamy avocado dressing. I love this dressing as a dipping sauce, too! It’s made with loads of avocado, of course; cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and bit of garlic to add a zesty kick. Bottle up any remaining dressing and keep it in the fridge for up to a week. The shrimp is tossed with more garlic and a bit of smoked paprika for a light hint of smokiness in the dish. They’re then seared in olive oil and seasoned with a bit of cilantro for a fresh flavor twist.
And then onto the salad part, this is so exciting! The shrimp is served over of crunchy romaine lettuce, crunchy cucumbers, sweet tomatoes, shallots and MANGO! My favorite addition to this shrimp salad. I love the sweet mango combined with the creamy avocado and juicy shrimp. The flavors remind of the tropics! If you’re looking for a new and not-so-boring salad recipe, this one is for you!
