Shrimp Avocado Salad


Shrimp Avocado Salad
Shrimp Avocado Salad is perfect for a quick lunch or supper during the summer. Add to a sandwich, pasta, or atop greens, too! Especially when it is hot and humid in south, I always start craving things that are cool and filling without being heavy and draining.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boiled or steamed shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 avocados, cut into large pieces
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion

For the Dressing

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon Xanthium Gum
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Add shrimp, avocado, and onion to a large bowl.
  2. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together ingredients for the dressing. Whisk until well-combined.
  3. Add dressing to shrimp avocado salad until it has the amount you desire. Serve additional dressing on the side.
