Grilled shrimp is a great easy weeknight dinner. And with warmer weather ahead of us a grilled shrimp salad with a zesty citrus avocado dressing is the exactly what I need!
If you can’t tell by now shrimp is on of our my favorite proteins to cook with. Not because It’s my favorite (I’ll alway go for a nice grilled rib-eye), but because it’s something I know everyone in the house will eat.
For the dressing, it’s simple. A squeeze of lemon, lime into a blender with avocado, salt and garlic. Stir in olive oil and some water to lighten it up and it’s ready to toss in your salad.
And when I grill my shrimp my goto is alwasy with a little lemon, pepper and garlic. It’s simple and delicous.
This is an easy to create spring salad, that is going to make dinner prep a breeze!
