Shrimp and Berry Salad with Avocados

Shrimp and Berry Salad with Avocados is a super simple, addictive,  deliciously, healthy, lunch or light dinner idea you can readily make in no time flat with fresh ingredients such as crisp romaine lettuce, succulent gulf shrimp, red tomatoes, red onions, chickpeas, ripened avocados, juicy raspberries, and sweet blackberries.

I love Gulf shrimp, and I’ll be quite frank with you if I see Gulf Shrimp on sale and look good, I am buying them in mass quantities. I will find any excuse I can use in my recipes; they are just that darn delicious. Hence one of my favorite recipes is my Shrimp and Berry Salad with Avocados.

I mean, summer is only 3 months away, and I totally miss the warm sunshine state I lived in for so many years. I have lived near the Memphis border for a little over 6 months, and darn you, Mississippi. You are still rather chilly to this Floridian girl. So I am in desperate need of a Florida meal now, and Shrimp and Berry Salad with Avocados definitely will be my go-to Florida meal today on this chilly day.

I love making my own Fresh Mixed Berry Vinaigrette for the Shrimp and Berry Salad with Avocados, combining fresh, delightful flavors of fresh juicy raspberries, sweet blackberries, quality balsamic vinegar, garlic, Vidalia onions, pure organic honey, tarragon, and fresh sweet basil. You can find my Fresh Mixed Berry Vinaigrette recipe here ->

I’m telling you I was astonished to see some of the comments about bottled salad dressing. I thought I was one of the few who preferred using homemade, but it seems there are many of us.

What do you prefer to use? Bottled or store brand? What’s your favorite go-to homemade salad dressing or bottled dressing? Let me know in the comments; I love hearing from Y’all,
