This is 3 of my favorite ingredients..great for spring/summer dining. Super easy to prepare and looks great on the plate. COOKS NOTES: Taste the dressing first, and season prior to adding to salad. Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do, I would appreciate feedback, Thanks ! Due to the style of the ingredients I have chosen ZWT REGION: Belgium / BeNeLux.

This is a really nice salad. The only thing I would do different next time is add a little less salt to the dressing. Very nice combination of ingredients. Adding the lemon juice to the water gave the shrimp a nice fresh taste. I am going to make this as a starter to our Easter dinner. Thanks Kiwi!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring 2 quarts water, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan, then poach shrimp at a bare simmer, uncovered, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  2. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking. Let shrimp chill in water 2 minutes, then drain and pat dry.
  3. Whisk together tarragon, mustard, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a serving bowl. Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
  4. Quarter avocados lengthwise, then pit, peel, and cut into bite-size pieces. Add shrimp, avocados, and endive to dressing and toss.
