  • 1 lb small shrimp
  • 2 large cucumbers cubed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes whole and halved
  • 1/3 cup red onion chopped very small
  • 1 whole avocado cubed and sliced
  • 1 sprig fresh mint


  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 whole lemon, juiced
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste


  • (This step is optional) Bring a medium pot of salted water with fresh lemon slices to a boil. Add shrimp and cook for about 1 minute. Pre-cooked shrimp is rather bland, this step adds in a fresh taste. After about 1 minute or so, transfer the shrimp to a bucket/bowl of ice cold water to stop the cooking process. Otherwise just follow package instruction on how to thaw the shrimp. Set aside. 
  • In a large bowl add in the remaining salad ingredients. Top with cooled shrimp. 
  • In a separate bowl mix the dressing ingredients. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour dressing over salad and fold to combine. Top with fresh mint leaves and serve.
