Shrimp Salad for Lunch

I was in the mood for shrimp for lunch, so I lightly egged some shrimps and made a salad with a cilantro avocado dressing -

Served over lettuce with tomatoes and hearts of palm. The dressing was mixed in a bowl and poured over. Really good!

Cilantro Avocado Dressing

1 ripe avocado, diced
2/3 cup mayonnaise, preferably homemade
1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves, chopped fine
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 lime, zested
1 to 2 limes, juiced (4 to 5 tablespoons)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon green hot sauce, or to taste

The dressing was delicious and tasted great over the still warm shrimp.

    Looks nice and simple yet very tasty. :P
  • The pics are washed out cause I was standing near the window, and it's bright outside today. It was prettier in person and a refreshing lite lunch.

    Looks great Faith, I saved the dressing recipe, we just happen to have an avacado on hand as well as some shrimp :) :cheer:
  • Frank, the recipe said to use a blender but I just used a whisk. I did not have green hot sauce, so just used Crystal hot sauce instead.

    Faith: What a perfect lunch for a warm Florida day! That dressing sounds awesome. You just mixed it all up, and good to go? Not blended at all? Nice post!

  • Michelle, I just whisked it in a bowl - to lazy to wash the blender after. It tasted just fine whisked and not blended.
