|A wonderful combination of flavors and textures.|
This elegant salad is perfect for a summer luncheon or starter course. It’s important to buy the avocados a few days in advance to allow them time to ripen.
Line each salad plate with red-leaf lettuce.
Place 1/2 an avocado in the center of the lettuce.
Stuff the center hole with cooked Bay Shrimp, shaping it into high mounds.
Drizzle with Louis Dressing.
|Fresh and delicious!|

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk 1/2 cup cold Heavy Cream until it forms soft peaks.
Then, gently fold in:
1/2 cup Cocktail Sauce (we normally use Trader Joe’s)
1 1/4 cups Mayonnaise
6 – 8 Green Onions, finely sliced
3 Tablespoons fresh Italian Parsley, finely minced
Juice of a Lemon
1 teaspoon Salt
Cracked Black Pepper
Pinch of Hungarian Paprika
This dressing is wonderful with seafood of all kinds.
|We served this as a starter course for a fish meal.|

What a quick, easy and elegant salad, Susan! I must admit, I never make dressings except for a balsamic vinaigrette occasionally. Probably need to expand my horizons, huh? đź™‚ Bet your guests were happy!
this looks simply delicious – I’ve got tons of avocados so this is perfect!
Mary Hirsch says
Susan, although your recipes and presentations of them are always beautiful, this table of yours is stunning, just gorgeous. I can just picture you and John at either end of the table. I don’t know what this special event and evening was about but I hope your guests appreciated your efforts. Sending love from Colorado and missing you both.

Mary, you’re so sweet! John promised my mom to make the Sole with Risotto that we featured from Anna Del Conte’s “Italian Kitchen,” so we had my family over. We found these gorgeous Wedgwood dishes at an antiques show and sale in Santa Barbara & bought them for ourselves as a 5th anniversary gift since we never bought china when we married. The color is just so unusual & we just loved them.
We miss you,too! xoxo
