Exotic Raspberry & Shrimp Green Salad

Exotic Raspberry & Shrimp Green Salad

Summer is just the perfect time to enjoy this refreshing and unique salad! The color contrast between the fresh green vegetables and the deep red of the raspberries is a joy to the eye. Not to mention that the delightful combination of fruit, greens and the mild seafood shrimp taste is such an unexpected marriage of flavors!

Even the dressing comes with a little pleasant surprise:  more fresh raspberries blended with the vinaigrette give a fruity aroma and a thicker substance to the dressing!

Have the shrimp cooked before hand and this salad is ready in just a few minutes!

  • 2 avocados, sliced
