Ingredients:

  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 English cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sliced jalapeños for added heat

Instructions:

  1. Cook the Shrimp: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they turn pink and opaque. Drain the shrimp and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey or agave syrup, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to create the dressing. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  3. Assemble the Salad: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked shrimp, diced avocado, halved cherry tomatoes, diced cucumber, thinly sliced red onion, and chopped cilantro. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Add the Dressing: Pour the prepared dressing over the shrimp and vegetable mixture. Gently toss until everything is evenly coated in the dressing.
  5. Chill and Serve: Cover the salad and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Before serving, give the salad a final toss and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  6. Optional Garnish: If desired, garnish the salad with sliced jalapeños for an extra kick of heat and flavor.
