Shrimp Avocado Salad

I love avocados!  They are super yummy.  Avocados are very versatile too!  You can put them in sandwiches, wraps, salads, burgers, etc.  You can make them into guacamole!  You can use avocado as a healthy spread instead of mayo.  Some people have started using avocados as a pasta sauce.  The possibilities are endless.  (I have seen some people use it in desserts!)

I decided to try making a avocado shrimp salad. 

Shrimp Avocado Salad
Adapted from Add A Pinch

1 lb shrimp, peeled, cooked
4 avocados, cut into large pieces
1/2 red onion, diced (very small)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
garlic salt
pepper, to taste

1.  Add shrimp, avocado and onion to a large bowl
2.  In a 2 cup measuring cup, mix together extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic powder and Dijon mustard.
3.  Add dressing to shrimp avocado salad until desired taste.  Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.
4.  Chill until ready to eat

O-M-G!  I loved this salad.  I ate it more like a dip with chips.  But now I am thinking it would be a yummy sandwich or wrap too!  The vinegar gives it a good tang to make you want to keep eating.  This is perfect for a snack or on a hot day.

Soak up the warm weather because fall is right around the corner!
