Shrimp and Avocado Salad with Russian Vinaigrette

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

There are worse things in the world than having leftover Russian dressing from our Kimchi Reuben recipe. You can spread it on burgers, drizzle it over steamed mussels, or turn it into a sprightly viniagrette for this salad.  You can cook the shrimp however you like, either poaching or grilling or roasting them.

Ingredients

  • 6 Tbs. Russian dressing (from the Pastrami-Kimchi Reuben recipe)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce, torn into leaves
  • 1/2 cup halved green grapes
  • 1/2 cup sliced snap peas
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh dill
  • 20 large cooked shrimp
