This is one of the salads which uses avocado dressing from the last week recipe. It is green, fresh summer salad topped with boiled shrimps with a hint of spiciness provided by the dressing.
My advise is to assemble this salad right before you are planning to serve it: it calls for avocados, tomatoes and lettuce (all of which react to oxidation by loosing taste and pretty look).
However avocado dressing can be prepared in advance and stored in airtight container in fridge.
- 4 medium size tomatoes
- 3 avocados (1 for dressing and rest for salad)
- 3-4 lettuce leaves
- About 28 boiled shrimps (can be also grilled)
- 1 shallot onion
- 2 serrano peppers
- 1.5 – 2 lemons (juice)
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- Boiled water cooled down to room temperature (1-2 cups)
- Fresh cilantro
- Ground black pepper to taste
- Salt to taste
