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.

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.

Ways To Serve Cold Shrimp Salad 

  • I served it with chickpeas for a protein-packed option, and added fiber. Feel free to peel your chickpeas if you prefer, if you struggle eating them with shell on. 
  • Serve over a bed of spinach leaves or chopped lettuce or Arugala. Then drizzle the dressing over the top and dive in. 
  • Eat alone and skip the chickpeas for a low carb and keto-friendly shrimp salad recipe.
