Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad

Jump to recipe

This Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad with the addition of smoked cheddar and a refreshing strawberry dressing is a fancy salad suitable for an entertaining, a date dinner or just for any occasion.

Hello, my friends! Happy Monday Mid of July! The first summer month has almost finished. Whaaaaat? Can you believe that? I am suggesting not to waste any second and devour all the fruit and vegetables summer can offer. Do you agree? I’ve got a super delicious solution, then – this Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad.

Also, I am going to keep it sweet and short today, just to have more time to eat all those cherries and watermelons. And enjoy some walking, too.

This Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad is the epitome of the summertime; it’s elegant, light, refreshing (But satisfying!), and so delightful. While normally mangoes can be found all year round, I believe they’re at their best exactly this time in North America.

This Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad combines just a few ingredients such as:

  • Marinated and sautéed shrimp;
  • Succulent mangoes;
  • Rich and silky avocadoes;
  • Neutral and juicy spinach (Can be substituted for arugula or another kind of salad);
  • A delightful and refreshing Strawberry Verbena Dressing (Can be substituted for mint);
  • Smoked cheddar

Now, mangoes, avocadoes, and shrimp have a very delicate sublime flavour while smoked cheddar has a very strong profile. Thus, I wanted to elevate it to a more sophisticated level and make a more suitable for such salad rather than just grated or cubed. Lacy crisps? Yes, indeed! Very thin and crispy “chips” turned out to have less overpowering flavour…and they’re just much more fun, right? You can either crumble the cheddar crisps over the salad or arrange broken pieces on top. Of course, you don’t need all the cheddar crisps, so you can either cut the recipe in half or put the leftovers in a container (Don’t cover a lid, though) – it is so good for snacking.

I hope you like this simple yet elegant and delicious recipe and give it a try this summer!

Cheers.

    I just love anything with mangoes! This looks like a completely tasty salad, Ben! And that dressing – I was just thinking of making a dressing by starting with raspberries in a blender – I must’ve read your post in my sleep to wake up thinking that – anyway, this salad is definitely a summer must-make!

    That smoked cheddar is a great twist to this recipe Ben. Turning them into “chips” for the salad is a great idea. And your shrimps look amazing in your photographs I could practically just dive in through my screen and eat them right now! This is an excellent recipe for summer. And I know we’re half way through but I’m still hoping its a long one and the sun comes out again for us here in Scotland! Hope you guys are having an amazing weekend!

    OK, so I’m not the biggest lover of shrimp in the world. However, I am digging the cheddar paprika crisps! Like when you make a grilled cheese and you look for the crispy cheese that has oozed out! Also, yes mid-July, and yet in the UK summer holidays have only JUST started. How I miss NS summers!

    What a great idea to turn that smoked cheddar into crispy “chips” for the salad. You’re right that smoked cheddar brings a strong flavor, so it’s cool to adjust it slightly here. Plus, the chips definitely make this salad look fancier! This sounds perfect for summer…even if summer is half-way through already. (When did that happen!?) David approved.
