How to Make Cilantro Lime Shrimp Avocado Salad

To make it, I started with a head of fresh romaine that I chopped and then topped with fresh shrimp, avocado, diced red onions, grape tomatoes, and an amazingly easy and tasty cilantro lime vinaigrette dressing.

I then lightly tossed it all together to make sure everything was evenly coated with the dressing and added just a bit more chopped fresh cilantro to the salad for serving. While it isn’t necessary, it sure does make the salad even prettier, I think.

It is simply scrumptious!

  1. This salad looks so delicious and light! I usually go for chicken in my salads but shrimp is going in it next time! Love it 🙂

  2. There is something about shrimp and avocado in the summertime. Come on summer already! Looking forward to making this this weekend. Such a great starter while I get the grill going.

  3. This looks delightful, but I’m allergic to shrimp. I’m thinking salmon. Hmmm.

  4. I made this and it was such a disappointment. The lime juice was sooooo over powering. I should have know better when I saw equal parts of lime juice veras olive oil. I tried correcting it with mayo, and then honey, but this did not reduce the acid. Anyone else have this problem? So sorry I wasted so much money and time on this recipe.

  5. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. We enjoyed this yesterday. It was such a hit, and exactly what I was hoping for. The flavors blend together beautifully and are the essence of summer, I think. It doesn’t hurt that the prep time for this dish is relatively short. Cant wait to enjoy this recipe again!
