Shrimp, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

Shrimp Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
A fine combination for a blisteringly hot day. Too bad today is grey and mithery, but one can hope for better, warmer days soon. In the meantime, this salad is a fabulous mix of flavours and textures.

Making Shrimp Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
The salad is quick to prepare; the only steps needing any finesse are peeling the grapefruit and de-veining the shrimp.
Peeling grapefruit
I found that removing the pith from the grapefruit was easiest if you go at it by hand. Best to do it over a bowl so you can catch any juice to dress the salad with later.

De-veining the shrimp – slide a knife down the ‘belly’ of the shrimp and pull out the grey vein.
