This is a cool, crisp salad that's chock-full of fresh flavors. It even tastes healthy (as it is).
  • ¼ c. thinly sliced red onion (Cut the onion slices in half or chop them if they are too long to be eaten politely.)
  • ¼ c. fresh lime juice (about 2 medium limes)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 10 oz. cooked, shelled, and deveined shrimp, large or jumbo, if possible. (More shrimp can be added.)
  • 5 oz. diced avocado (1½ to 2 medium)
  • 1 medium fresh tomato, diced (123 g.)
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeds and membrane removed, finely diced
  • 1 T. fresh cilantro (chopped)
  1. In a small bowl, combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Set aside for at least 5 minutes in order for the flavor of the onion to mellow.
  2. Chop the shrimp, and then add it to a large bowl. Gently stir in the avocado, tomato, and jalapeno.
  3. Stir in the lime juice mixture, and then add the cilantro. Add more salt and/or pepper to taste.
  4. Serve cold.
