Inspired by one of Seattle’s most beloved fine dining restaurants, one of my favorite salads I make at home is an avocado shrimp salad. Each element perfectly pairs with each other. I just love the creaminess of sliced avocado with fresh shrimp. The dill in the 1000 island dressing adds just enough tartness to the shrimp without overpowering. I typically make this salad when company comes over although it is easy enough to make for any lunch or dinner. I love this salad because of its simplicity and how elegant it looks on a plate. Enjoy!

Placed chopped lettuce on each place. Carefully fan out half an avocado which has been sliced over the lettuce. Pour 2 tablespoons of 1000 island dressing on top of the avocado and top with 1/3 cup of shrimp. Serve with a lemon wedge and garnish with chopped dill or parsley. Enjoy!
