This is an easy, refreshing salad that makes a great statement!
Citrus Shrimp Salad
1 ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
1 lb (450 g) cooked shrimp, peeled, deveined if necessary, and coarsely chopped if large
Chopped lettuce for garnish
For the dressing:
1 cup (250 ml) sour cream (or yogurt)
3 Tbs (45 ml) orange and grapefruit juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Peel the oranges and grapefruit and cut out sections over a bowl to collect the juices. Arrange the citrus sections, avocado slices, and shrimp attractively on a bed of chopped lettuce.
Whisk together the dressing ingredients using the juice collected from sectioning the fruit and drizzle over the salad.
Serves 4 to 6.
Alternative idea: If you chop everything a little more finely you can also make yummy citrus shrimp lettuce wraps - just combine the ingredients and place a heaping tablespoon full on a large lettuce leaf and roll! You can drizzle a little extra dressing over the rolls if you desire
Other alternatives: Although it is citrus flavored, I've also added blueberries and strawberries in season. If you want some crunch and a little extra kick I've also added diced bell peppers.
