Avocado and Shrimp Chopped Salad #FishFridayFoodies

 Plump, tender shrimp grilled to perfection and served on top of chopped romaine, red cabbage, fennel, avocado, cucumbers and bell peppers.  A perfect summer meal.


It's time for Fish Friday Foodies...................
Sue of Palatable Pastime is hosting this month and invited us all to share Seafood in Salad.  Let's take a look at what everyone brought to the table.




I love making salads in the summer and chopped salads are easy and beautiful.  You can use any and all of your favorite vegetables depending on what is in season and what is available in your refrigerator.  For this salad I used some romaine, red cabbage, yellow bell peppers, persian cucumbers and avocado.


As I was drizzling on the dressing, Frank came in with the shrimp and I spied the tomatoes on the counter that I had forgotten.  I topped the salad with those tomatoes and the shrimp, poured us a glass of Chablis and dinner was served.
