Shrimp Avocado Salad

I’m all about the light and fresh flavors for summer, and this Shrimp Avocado Salad is no exception, you guys! It’s so easy to put together, but you want to use high quality jumbo shrimp and beautifully ripe avocados…that’s what sets it apart from just another salad!

And the rest is just elements of the dressing with a sprinkling of red onions and cilantro. The mix of the lime juice, cumin and the cilantro give it a Mexican vibe, but the taste is not too potent for picky eaters. The salad is low-carb, high-protein and medium in effort…actually it’s quite possibly my easiest effortless salad…so no excuses!

How to make shrimp avocado salad

For the dressing:

I used equal parts of extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lime juice. If you don’t like the taste of cumin, you can definitely skip that. If you’re unsure about the taste of cumin, trust this foodie, and throw the cumin in there. Then, just season with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle some fresh cilantro, and that’s the dressing magic that brings the whole dish together!

For the assembly:

Then it’s just about assembling the salad but cutting up the shrimp (or leaving it whole), avocado and onions and give it all a gentle toss. I say gentle because we want to incorporate all the flavors together but we don’t want to mush the avocado and accidentally turn this into guacamole.
