Combine chopped red onion with avocado oil, juice of 2 and a half limes, fresh cilantro, salt, and pepper. Marinate for 10-15 minutes while you prep the rest of the salad. I decided to marinate the onions in the dressing because marinated onion makes everything more magical! It also cuts the "bite" of the raw onion, allowing the flavors to really shine through!
You have a few choices with the shrimp here. You can cook it from fresh or frozen, use fresh pre-cooked shrimp (often labeled shrimp cocktail shrimp) from your grocer's seafood counter. I like to thaw frozen shrimp, season with salt and paprika, and quickly sauté/steam them with a little bit of oil and water. After I chop them into bite sized pieces and pop them in a bowl in the fridge to chill while I make the rest of the salad.
Peel and cube your avocados and combine with steamed edamame and chopped bell pepper in a medium-large bowl. Pour your marinated onion dressing over the veggies and add your chilled shrimp. Toss gently to coat and add any additional seasoning you'd like! More salt and pepper are welcome if you prefer it and extra chopped cilantro makes a pretty garnish. Dig in right away!
We've left this chilled for an hour or two in the fridge to it get even colder and while it's pretties fresh, it's still crazy tasty this way! The avocado will start to brown eventually so this salad is best enjoyed the day of. See post for tasty servings suggestions and more!
