Citrus Shrimp Salad with Avocado

Ingredients

  • 1 pound medium Pan-Seared Citrus Shrimp (I use 31/40 shrimp)
  • 8 cups greens (such as arugula, spinach, or spring mix)
  • Fruity or lemon-flavored extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon or 1/2 orange
  • 1 avocado , sliced or diced
  • 1 shallot , minced
  • 4 ounces sliced almonds , toasted
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Prepare the recipe for the Pan-Seared Citrus Shrimp, or gently warm the leftover shrimp. Or, if you prefer, serve the shrimp chilled.
  2. Toss the shrimp with the salad greens in a large bowl.

  3. Lightly drizzle with olive oil, and if desired, some of the sauce remaining from the shrimp with a generous squeeze of citrus, and toss lightly to coat.

Recipe Notes

  • Use some of the citrus sauce from the shrimp as a double duty dressing.
  • Or, if you don’t have enough sauce for the dressing, simply use a good extra virgin olive oil (I like the lemon flavored varieties) with an additional squeeze of citrus.
