I was inspired to make this salad over at my friend Lisa’s blog (shrimp & avocado salad with carrot ginger dressing). My salad uses a marinated shrimp and I cheated on the dressing. It was a refreshing meal.
ASIAN SHRIMP SALAD
1 pound marinated, broiled shrimp
avocado, sliced or chopped
green onion, chopped
ginger dressing (or dressing of choice)
I chose the following marinade for the shrimp:
2 tablespoons orange juice, plus 2 teaspoons orange juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil, plus 1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 1/4 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger or 1 1/4 teaspoons dried ginger
2 scallions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 lb. shrimp
Mix marinade ingredients together and marinate shrimp 20 minutes to an hour before cooking. Grill or broil shrimp until pink and cooked through.
As for the dressing, I used Tastefully Simple’s “tangy ginger” dressing:
It was very good. This can be ordered from a Tastefully Simple consultant, such as my friend Anne: Tastefully Simple.
