  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! 🙂

  6. Have been making this recipe as is for years , I find it to be better when it’s sits for at least 6 hours , it’s best the next day though once it all sits also great made with chicken instead ☺️

  7. Add a few quartered tiny tims and make a dressing of your choice and, voila! I muh more than pedestrian salad.

  8. This recipe is awesome!  I added a small amount of agave to make it sweeter.  I didn’t have red onions, so my husband suggested  shallots.  I used to taste.  We love shallots, so I used more.  This will be regular at our house. Thanks for the recipe,

  9. I just leave out the red onion, and add in my fav veggies. Super easy to make!

  10. I just started the “bulletproof” diet and this fits! Thanks for the great recipe.
