Shrimp Avocado Salad
Avocado tomatoes and shrimp are a triple threat when it comes to flavor combinations. Use cooked shrimp that has been peeled and all you do is toss into a large bowl, whip up the sauce, drizzle over and stir. Eat as is or even toss of a bed of leafy greens or spinach leaves.
What is In Shrimp Avocado Salad

How To Make Shrimp Salad
Start by prepping your onion, tomatoes, and avocado, and toss in a bowl. Then add in your diced shrimp. Now grab a new bowl and add in your dressing ingredients, mix well and then pour over mixture, and add drained chickpeas and dive in.
Can I Used Canned Shrimp for This Shrimp Salad
Yes, you can use canned shrimp for this shrimp salad. You just want to have cooked shrimp that has been peeled and is ready to eat. So the canned shrimp works great if you like the flavor. Otherwise, reach for cocktail peeled shrimp, and dice it up into bite-size pieces.

- Dressing Ingredients -
