    * Shrimp, cooked, 12 oz (remove)
    * Jalapeno Peppers, 2 pepper (remove)
    * Olive Oil, Extra Virgin, 5 tsp (remove)
    * Lemon juice, 1 tbsp (remove)
    * Red Ripe Tomatoes, 4 tomato (remove)
    * Avocados, California (Haas), 2 fruit without skin and seeds (remove)


Put the shrimp in a small bowl and add 1/2 of the jalapeno, 2 teaspoons lemon oil, and salt and pepper, to taste, and toss to combine. In a second bowl, mix the tomatoes with 2 teaspoons oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Put the diced avocado in a third bowl, add the remaining 2 teaspoons lemon oil, remaining 1/2 of the jalapeno, salt and pepper, to taste, and toss well.

To assemble, divide 3/4 of the shrimp among 4 short 6-ounce wide-rimmed glasses. Top the shrimp in each glass with 1/4 of the tomatoes, followed by 1/4 of the avocado. Finely chop the remaining shrimp to garnish each glass and sprinkle the chives evenly over each salad. Alternately, you can layer this salad in a large glass trifle bowl, to share. Serve immediately or chill and serve within 1 hour.


Turn this into a dip by simply serving with chips!

Go light on black pepper in this dish because of the jalapeno.

Use 1 jalapeno if you are not lover of heat.

Great way to use leftover shrimp cocktail.

Try substituting shrimp with fresh crab or lime-cooked fresh white fish. AWESOME!

    Shrimp is loaded with choleterol. Why would this recipe be beneficial? - 9/14/10
