Shrimp & Avocado Salad Recipe

This Shrimp & Avocado Salad Recipe is one of my favorite cold salad recipes ever.  It’s really easy to make and everyone who tries it must have the recipe!

This salad is served cold so it makes a really good appetizer idea for you gatherings and parties!  It’s so filling that I actually have it as a whole meal.  Serve it with Corn Chips or Pita Chips and you have a real treat.

This would make a nice recipe for left over shrimp (boy, that never happens in my house).  Or you can purchase the shrimp already cooked and peeled in the freezer section of your local grocery store.  We ended up using the tomatoes, green onions, cilantro and jalapenos from our Raised Garden bed we told you about earlier.  Ah, fresh ingredients is absolutely delicious!

I normally don’t have cocktail sauce on hand and usually just whip some up when I need some.  The cocktail sauce I make consists of Ketchup, Horseradish and a squeeze of fresh lemon.  If you want to try and make your own just add a little bit of horseradish at a time until you get the taste you want.  Some like it spicier than others.

Here’s a really good tip for dicing an avocado.  Start by cutting the avocado in half and remove the seed.  Then use a knife to dice the avocado while it’s still in the peel.  (see photo below)  Then use a spoon to remove the diced avocado.  Works great every time!
