A tangy salad to satisfy seafood lovers, this is simple enough for a weekend brunch, but special enough to serve to dinner guests.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Asian fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 30 large shrimp, cooked, peeled, and deveined
  • 2 large pink grapefruit, segmented
  • 3 red radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks or slices
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 6 oz (175g) baby salad greens (mesclun)
  • Bunch of watercress, thick stems discarded
  • 6 sprigs of mint leaves, stems discarded, leaves torn

Directions

 

1. Make the dressing. Combine all of the ingredients together in a jar, and shake until blended.

2. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels, and place in a bowl. Add 2 tbsp of the dressing and toss.
