Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad


¼ cup chopped red onion
Juice of 2 limes
1 teaspoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Black pepper to taste
1 pound jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and chopped
1 medium tomato, diced
1 medium Hass avocado, diced (about 5 oz)
1 jalapeño, seeds removed, finely diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Prepare the Dressing:

In a small bowl, combine the chopped red onion, lime juice, olive oil, kosher salt, and a generous amount of black pepper.
Stir the ingredients vigorously until they are fully mixed.
Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
Combine the Main Ingredients:

In a large mixing bowl, add the chopped shrimp, diced tomato, diced avocado, finely diced jalapeño, and chopped cilantro.
Gently toss to combine, being careful not to mash the avocado.
Mix with Dressing:

Drizzle the lime dressing over the combined shrimp and avocado mixture.
Gently toss everything together to ensure the ingredients are evenly coated with the dressing.
Chill and Serve:

For the best flavor, cover the salad and let it chill in the refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes before serving.
This allows the ingredients to fully absorb the zesty lime dressing.
