Zesty Avocado, Dragon Fruit and Shrimp Salad

Because of the abundance of dragon fruit in Ilocos and avocados are in season, I got inspired by this shrimp, avocado and dragon fruit salad recipe I found on the net. I went to the supermarket at about the same time people were going wild about that crappy end of the world rumor. Okay, were still alive and I had a great healthy salad!

The salad was the easiest thing to whip up. You might want to try something light, fresh and wholesome for a change. Just marinate cooked and peeled shrimps in a mixture of 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon minced garlic and 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Arrange lettuce leaves on individual salad plates and toss in cubed (one-half each) avocado and dragon fruit. Top with the shrimps and lemon-olive oil-garlic marinade. Makes 2-4 servings. I was unable to find lime in the original recipe, so I used lemon instead.

Sweet, the mister loved it *wink*
