Avocado Shrimp Salad from Tina MacDonald


This is based on the Hot Bacon Salad Dressing from R. Sanchez

1/2 pound bacon slices, diced
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup Brown Sugar Twin
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon mixed salad herbs (I used a mixture of parsley, tarragon, oregano and basil)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Fry diced bacon until crisp. Mix together the remaining ingredients and add to frying pan. Cook until very hot (do not boil the Sugar Twin can become bitter at high heat).


1 large bunch fresh spinach
1 small red onion, sliced and separated into rings
2 small cans medium shrimp
2 avocados, peeled, stone removed and coarsely chopped

Clean spinach, removing stems. Place in large salad bowl with remaining ingredients. Pour the hot bacon dressing over the salad, and toss till coated. Serve as a first course, and watch it disappear!
