Ingredients

    1 12-oz bag of frozen, raw, peeled shrimp
    2 fresh ears of sweet corn
    1 large avocado, just ripe but not mushy
    1-2 pints of fresh cherry tomatoes (or any form of great tomatoes, chopped)

    For the dressing:
    fresh dill, chopped (I like the tubes of fresh herbs available now in the grocery store; use a big squirt)
    juice from one lemon
    2-3 Tbsp good extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp dijon or spicy mustard
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Boil or microwave the corn and when crisp-tender, slice the kernels off each ear and into a large bowl.
Chop the tomatoes and avocado into bite sized pieces and add to corn.
Thaw and quick saute the shrimp until pink and no longer translucent; add to the vegetables.

To make the dressing, whisk the juice of 1 lemon, with 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil, dill, mustard, and salt and pepper.

Drizzle the dressing over the salad (you may only use half -- taste and see how much you like) and then toss and serve with fresh crusty bread! Enjoy!

Serving Size: Makes three good-sized meal servings or six-eight side salad servings

Number of Servings: 3
