Full of cool, shrimp and creamy avocados, this salad has a bit of a zesty flavor you’ll love from the bits of red onion and the fabulous homemade dressing.

And this salad could not be any quicker or simpler, which really helps to make it such a well-loved salad!

How to Make Shrimp Avocado Salad

To make this favorite salad, you’ll need these ingredients.

  • Shrimp – Steamed or Boiled, Peeled and Deveined
  • Avocados
  • Red Onion

For the Dressing:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Garlic Powder
  • Parsley
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Again, make this salad super simple by having your shrimp steamed when you purchase it. My grocery store seafood counter offers to steam your shrimp when you buy it. Then just peel and devein it and refrigerate it. I also boil shrimp and prep it ahead of time so that it’s in the fridge, ready to go. And you can always buy cooked, peeled and prepped shrimp if you want.

To make this salad, add shrimp, avocado and onion to large mixing bowl.

Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a 2 cup measuring cup. Whisk the ingredients together until well-combined.

Add the desired amount of dressing to the salad and toss. Serve additional dressing on the side. Enjoy!

This shrimp avocado salad would also be perfect inside of fresh bread or bakery bread for a delicious sandwich for a more casual supper with friends or piled high on top of a bed of greens for a dressier salad for a luncheon.

There are just so many options with this bright, tasty salad that you just can’t go wrong with it.

If I’m having a luncheon or serving this salad when entertaining, I may also add Chicken Salad with Grapes, Grape Salad, Pimento Cheese or Gazpacho with some bread and salad greens. These are all perfect for a cold lunch or supper that everyone loves!

Make Ahead Favorite

It makes a perfect make-ahead salad as well. Toss it all together, store it in an airtight container for a luncheon the next day or even supper the next evening. You’ll be so glad you did!

  1. Just made a single serving. For tomorrow’s lunch.. The dressing is delish although I added a little water to thin it, I may have added in too much Dijon. I think ill put it on a bed of spinach with a couple of cherri tomatoes cut up. Nice recipe. I think it’s one I’ll go to again. Thanks !!!

    1. Glad you like it, Janice! It is good with spinach and cherry tomatoes added, too!

  2. Hello:

    Making this today but could not tell if I should remove the shrimp tail. Only says peel and devein? What do you think?

  3. Delicious! Easy to make as well. I diced 1/4 of a red onion since our shrimp were a good size. I also cut up 3 avocados because they weren’t particularly large. Definitely recommend this recipe!

  4. Awesome salad! I added a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and substituted cilantro for the parsley. Delicious!
