Avocado & Shrimp Chopped Salad
To prepare dressing: Puree the dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.Advertisement
To prepare shrimp & salad: Preheat grill to medium or heat a grill pan over medium heat.
Toss shrimp with 2 teaspoons oil, lime zest, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Grill corn, turning occasionally, until slightly charred, 6 to 10 minutes. Grill the shrimp, turning once, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes total. Transfer corn and shrimp to a cutting board. Cut the kernels off the cob. Chop the shrimp into bite-size pieces.
Combine lettuce, cabbage, bell pepper, onion, tomatoes, fennel, avocado and bacon in a large bowl. Add the shrimp, corn and dressing; toss to coat. Season with pepper.
DIY grill basket: It’s best to use a grill basket when grilling small ingredients so they don’t fall into the fire. If you don’t have one, fold a 24-inch-long piece of heavy-duty foil in half and crimp up the edges to create a lip; this “basket” will prevent the food from sliding off the grates.
