This is a flavorful salad featuring healthy ingredients like shrimp, avocado and spinach, as well as a few tomatoes for garnish and a rich, creamy pink dressing. You will probably not need all the dressing, so offer the remainder on the side. Some people like to add extra dressing to their salad.

If you have some left over, it will keep for a couple of days in a covered container in the refrigerator. Just give it a stir before serving. This recipe makes four hearty servings, but it will stretch to six or even eight if you plan to serve this as a small appetizer instead of a complete meal. If you like you can swap the cherry tomatoes for large ones, then slice them into wedges and toss them with the other ingredients before adding the dressing.

Make sure your avocado is perfectly fresh, and that means soft but not dark and mushy. You can test your avocado to see how ripe it is by pressing gently on the pointed end. If there is a bit of ‘give’ then it is ripe. If it is too soft then it is overripe and if it is hard then it is not yet ripe.

Photo Description:

This makes a nice lunch salad and the creamy pink sauce really gives it a great flavor. If you do not have any tomato concentrate you can use ketchup instead for the dressing. If you do not have that either then the dressing will still taste good. It will just be less pink. The photo shows how creamy this is and the delicious tangy dressing works well with the soft, nutty flavor of the avocado, the crisp spinach taste, and the succulent shrimp. You could even use this mixture as a sandwich filling for an extra-hearty lunchtime treat.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
