How to Make Shrimp Salad
The key focus here is the avocado and shrimp combo. Our seasoned shrimp bring just enough flavor and spice to complement the creaminess of the avocado for a match made in heaven. For the salad pictured above, we chose our Signature Seasoned Prime Shrimp.
To round out the dish, throw in a mixture of your favorite vegetables. We used tomatoes, red pepper, and red onions for a California-Cobb-inspired salad. Add some fresh herbs and your favorite dressing, and you’ve got the summer salad of your dreams.
