Savory Shrimp Salad
Shrimp, with its gently curving shape and delicate pink color, looks beautiful in salads and main dishes. It also pairs beautifully with bacon and avocado. Shrimp comes frozen in large bags labeled by the number of shrimp in each bag. The lower the number, the larger the shrimp. For this recipe, look for shrimp that has already been deveined and shelled.
- 1 cup grilled or steamed shrimp
- 1 cup avocado, cubed
- 1/2 cup diced red onions
- 2 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 cups baby greens
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1/2 cup grape seed oil
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
Combine the shrimp, avocado, red onions, bacon and baby greens in a salad bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the orange juice, honey, garlic, ginger powder and black pepper together. Slowly add the grape seed oil, whisking vigorously until it emulsifies.
Toss the dressing with the salad and serve immediately.
