For the Creamy Avocado Dressing:
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
For the Curry Shrimp Chopped Salad:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¾ pound raw shrimp peeled
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce chopped

To prepare the salad:
  1. Add oil to a large skillet and heat to medium. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes until very fragrant.
  2. Add the shrimp and cook about 1 minute on one side before flipping them to the other side. Sprinkle shrimp with curry powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Continue cooking until shrimp are pink and cooked all the way through, about an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Wash and pat dry the red lettuce leaves. Chop the leaves and place them in a salad bowl.
  4. Cook the corn by either boiling it in water for 3 to 5 minutes or grilling it. Carefully remove the kernels with a knife.
  5. Add the corn, red onion and mango to the salad and toss with desired amount of creamy avocado dressing. Serve salad with shrimp on top and enjoy!
