"From a recipe book from Australian Good Food. Please note you more than likely would not use all the dressing in one sitting (depending on how much you like, so it is served on the side to let each person judge for themselves). Personally we would not leave the tails on the prawns."

Made for the FYC Tag Game as part of a dinner party for game night guests. While true to the heart & soul of the recipe, I admit to minor changes plus expansions. I used a mixed greens bagged product & sautéed the shrimp in a parslied lemon garlic sauce seasoned w/Old Bay. For the avocado ingredient, I used my recipe for avocado hummus I already had on-hand. Finally, I added hard-boiled egg wedges & black olives. I had made a decision early-on to combine the appy/starter/soup/salad courses into a substantial salad, so your recipe was ideal. I esp appreciated this easy-fix salad w/an impressive presentation. Like another recipe that enjoyed “favorite status”, 1 of my guests made quite a point of saying your salad was her favorite part of the meal (her not a bit subtle hint that it deserves an encore). Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

A refreshing and healthy lunch that is quick and easy to put together. The Thousand Island dressing was a bit different than other Thousand Island dressing we have had but it worked very well with the avocado and shrimp. I did make one change in that I used fresh greens from the farmers market instead of the suggested greens. Thanks for the post.
