Having a hard time finding a delicious healthy recipe for barbecue season that sets you apart from the rest of the potato salad crowd? You HAVE to try this grilled avocado with shrimp salad recipe! Trust me, you’ll be remembered as the guest who brought the most delicious and unique alternative to meat!

BBQ season is in full swing in our home. I use the BBQ at least 5 days a week: From burgers, to steaks, to grilled chicken. That’s a lot of meat: it is not always a healthy choice and can get pretty expensive. That’s why I am trying to come up with BBQ meals that do not involve meat.  Not an easy task but there are quite few ideas out there.

Since I am a huge avocado fan, I decided to grill it. I have never done it before and I thought it would be a nice twist. But avocado by itself can be a little bit plain. I decided to add some grilled shrimps. The combination of these 2 ingredients is so good. I have tried it before in a delicious avocado shrimp salad recipe and kids loved it. Of course I added one of my favorite ingredients: Blue Dragon Hoisin sauce with a North American condiment: Mayonnaise. Interesting, right? Let’s see how you can make this delicious grilled salad recipe in less than 15 minutes.

    I do believe I just found a new favorite. I am such a big fan of shrimp and avocados – this sounds amazing. I bet after it is grilled, you could add it to a salad and – well yum.
