Avocado Citrus Shrimp Salad

Sometimes I just crave a fabulous salad. My fave is an Avocado Citrus Shrimp Salad.  You know, like the one you get from your favorite restaurant?   

The kind that you’d love to have every day at home.

The one that you dream about because it is so scrumptious and loaded with fresh ingredients.

Well, I am here to help you bring that crave-worthy Avocado Citrus Shrimp Salad to your home in under 10 minutes!

 

Avocado Fries

Of course, our most important ingredient is the avocado!  Slice up an entire avocado for this recipe.  The more the merrier!

 

Next, take your pre-cooked shrimp and toss with olive oil, lemon and fresh parsley and set aside

 

Place your greens in a large bowl and drizzle with your favorite citrus vinaigrette and toss to coat

 

Top the greens with the avocado, shrimp and pumpkin seeds and toss!  So delish and fresh!

 

Serve it with a few extra slices of lemon to squeeze over the dish right before enjoying.  

Pair it with our Margarita Sparkling Wine Cocktail for a little extra fun!

 

 

Let’s make it together!
