Shrimp, avocado & radish salad with a citrus dressing

Jun 30, 2015

This is a delicious throw-together salad which has such simple ingredients, tastes yum and looks so pretty with a little bit of careful ingredient placement!

The peppery radishes go so well with the creamy avocados and vinegar dressed cucumbers and the shrimp give the salad a healthy dose of protein to fill the meal out and keep you full. I made this salad last weekend as a starter for four people and put it on a big plate in the middle of the table so that people could help themselves but I will also make this again and again as a main meal for two, with some extra greens (rocket, spinach or watercress) and a few more shrimp now that the weather is hotting up here in London and Summer has arrived.

The flowers were freshly picked by my mother-in-law from her garden, so they made it in the shot!

Serves: 2
  • 100g cooked and peeled small brown shrimps
