Shrimp Louis! A Salad Like No Other

I love this salad for its simplicity and how wonderfully pleasant it is to my taste buds. The first time I had a similar salad was at the Treetops Hotel in Kenya. At that time, I didn’t really appreciate the delicacy that is avocado. Thankfully, since then I have evolved for the better. Hopefully you will enjoy this salad as much as I do. You don’t have to follow the recipe exactly, make it your own and leave me a note as to how you made it better 🙂
