salad from here. Mine had quinoa though.
Shrimp, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Quinoa and Lime Vinaigrette
1/2 pound of shrimp (I like easy peel)
olive oil-for cooking shrimp
1/2 cup quinoa
1 small lime
2 tablespoons olive oil (can vary depending on how you like your vinaigrette)
2 small avocado's (or 1 large), cut into small bite sized pieces
a cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1-Peel shrimp and sprinkle with a little cumin, chili powder and garlic salt. Cook these in the olive oil and set aside to cool. Once cooled, cut the shrimp into smaller pieces.
2-Cook quinoa per directions and let cool
3-Make a vinaigrette by whisking together the juice of one lime, the olive oil, a couple sprinkles of cumin, chili powder and garlic salt. Add a small sprinkle of sugar. You can adjust this all to your own taste and preference. I mix it and taste it and add more as I go.
4-Add veggies to the vinaigrette and then add in the shrimp and quinoa once they've cooled some. Mix everything together and refrigerate before serving.
This is a very refreshing and healthy summer salad!
