And that makes this shrimp avocado salad the perfect answer.

Full of cool, shrimp and creamy avocados, this salad has a bit of a zestiness to it from the bits of red onion and the dressing.

  1. Are the ingredients in the dressing sufficient to keep the avocado from turning if there’s leftovers?

  2. What could you add to zip it up a bit? I may not have put enough red onion in.

  3. I just grilled shrimp and made some quinoa but I needed a dressing. Going to try ur dressing. Thanks for sharing.

  4. My boyfriend and I loved this recipe. I think adding quinoa or even just lettuce would be great, too, if you’re looking for a filler. The dressing complemented the shrimp well. I would like to try this with grilled shrimp and zucchini one day.

  5. Thank you for this recipe. We usually like vinegar-based recipes so I thought that this one would be a winner! The kids love avocados and shrimp as much as my husband and I do, so we thought this would be a no-brainer on a hot summer night. The red-wine vinegar was not our favorite. I think next time I might try it with apple-cider vinegar or balsamic vinaigrette. I think I would also like to try it with fresh ginger, lemon juice or cilantro (even though I’m not a big fan of cilantro). I like the idea of this recipe a lot and can’t wait to tweak it and see what I can come up with! 🙂
