The Dressing:

Everything Else:

  • 1 lb. about 15-20 large cooked shrimp, chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 small red onion fine diced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil plus more for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl combine the cooked shrimp (see note), tomatoes, onion, avocado, and chopped basil. Set aside.
  • Make the dressing: In a small bowl combine lemon juice, rice vinegar, olive oil, garlic, basil, sriracha, honey and dijon mustard. Whisk together until smooth and combined.
  • Pour the dressing over the shrimp salad and toss to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Serve in a bowl, in lettuce leaves, or on a bed of lettuce, garnish with more fresh basil, and serve immediately with lemon wedges if desired!
