Shrimp Avocado Salad bursting with Caribbean flavors is ready to whisk you away to the islands!
This Shrimp Avocado Salad recipe is packed with creamy avocado, tropical fruit, sweet coconut, roasted macadamia nuts and Island marinated shrimp all doused in sweet and tangy bright Caribbean Vinaigrette.
My favorite types of salad are bursting with everything but lettuce and this Shrimp Avocado Salad recipe is no exception. This salad is quick and easy by using pre-cooked shrimp so our star comes player is transformed from boring to glorious in a flash.
The pre-cooked shrimp is marinates in splashes of orange juice, lime juice, soy sauce, ketchup and Island spices so each morsel is packed with flavor – just look at its marinated color!
While the shrimp marinates for an hour (not longer or it will become tough), you can prepare your salad ingredients – delectable mangos (my FAV – check out How to Cut a Mango), crisp jicama (if you have never cut jicama before, its SO easy, watch this video HERE), sweet kiwis, crunchy bell peppers and creamy avocados garnished by salty, roasted macadamia nuts (or sub your favorite nut) and sweetened toasted coconut flakes all on a bed of spinach.
And if that cast wasn’t delicious enough, the avocado shrimp salad all gets drizzled with Citrus Balsamic Vinaigrette layered with hints of orange juice, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, honey and ginger. If you think of it, I like to make my vinaigrette the day before so it can chill and the flavors can fully blend. so irresistible.
