Lime, Shrimp, Avocado and Cilantro Salad

Summer is here! Oh baby oh baby! Well technically it has been here for a while, but lately.. the temperature.. wooo rocketing! The weather is warmer, the sky is clearer, the produce is more vibrant and the stove becomes my enemy because it heats up my apartment to a million degrees celcius. Solution? Befriend my BBQ and learn to cook without the use of heat. Can we do it? I am sure as heck going to try.

This salad is so incredibly fresh and jam PACKED with flavor. No seriously, the flavor just explodes with every bite. I kid you not. 

But first, let me address the shrimp issue. Yes, I am aware the shrimp is something that needs to be cooked, therefore needs heat. Well I just happened to buy a shrimp ring that was on sale and the shrimp was already cooked! So there! But honestly we all know that isn't the best quality shrimp, so unfortunately for those of you who want to spend a tiny bit more, you will have to cook your shrimp. The price you pay for buying better product. Ha ha. 

Lime, Shrimp, Avocado and Cilantro Salad
Time: 10 min                         CPS: $2.25                    L of D:  Undergraduate

- 8-10 Small Shrimp
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1/4 Red Onion
- 10-12 Cherry Tomatoes
- Juice of 1 Lime
- 1/4 cup Chopped Cilantro
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper

So if you are using cooked shrimp, the only thing you need to do is chop everything up into similar sizes and toss everything into a big bowl.

Squeeze the lime all over the food. Drizzle a splash or 2 of olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Give one final toss.

That is it. You are done.

I am serious, that is it. Go eat it!
