Apple and Shrimp Salad Recipe



  • 2 lbs. shrimp, cooked and peeled
  • 4 medium apples, (Granny Smith, unpeeled and cubed)
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 6 drops of hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. cognac
  • 2 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 2 tsp. Cherchies® Lem'n Dill Seasoning


Cut shrimp into 2 to 3 pieces. Set aside in mixing bowl. Slice avocado in half, discard the pit. Scoop out avocado meat with a spoon (you will use the shell for serving). Cube avocado meat and add apples and avocado to the shrimp in mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, blend remaining ingredients to make a dressing.

Add this dressing to shrimp mixture and toss to coat evenly. Spoon salad mixture into avocado shells. Place the shells on a bed of lettuce before serving.  For a fun presentation, put lettuce and salad into martini glasses.

OR - Keep shrimp whole and slice the avocado. Mix all ingredients together except avocado and retain a small amount of the dressing. Place mixture on a bed of lettuce, top with avocado and drizzle with any remaining dressing.
