Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

IMG_451076568I was craving exactly this recently; light and cool with plenty of flavor. I think we will be eating a lot of it over the summer. I found it at skinnytaste.com and made it just like the recipe suggested.

  • 1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 hass avocado, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 limes, juice of
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

In a small bowl combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Let them marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion.

In a large bowl combine chopped shrimp, avocado, tomato, jalapeño. Combine all the ingredients together, add cilantro and gently toss. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 3 1/2 cups
