Shrimp Bacon Avocado Potato Salad

Shrimp Bacon Avocado Potato Salad is a mouthful for a recipe name, but so is the Salad (literally!). This Salad makes the most wonderful lunch and it can be served completely cooled or slightly warm.

The Salad also has some of my most favorite ingredients in, therefore if you also like the main ingredients you are sure to love this Salad !
It also helps a lot that all the ingredients are my family's favorites as well. And all the flavors compliments one another beautifully, to make it an easy eating, filling dish for lunch, or hey, even as a quick light dinner.

I also love that this Shrimp Bacon Avocado Potato Salad can be served at room temperature or warm, just off the stove - that is the Shrimp/Bacon mixture and the baby Potatoes of course.

Just looking at the photos makes my mouth water again ! I used a simple Mayonnaise dressing with the Potatoes and the Shrimp, so as to leave the main flavors dominant.

The original recipe called for Chives (which we all adore as well!), but when I made the Salad a second time around, I only had fresh Dill on hand.

We now prefer the Dill, but you can always substitute the Dill for chopped Chives, if that is more to your liking.

The Salad leaves can hardly be seen in the photos, but I promise there is a bed of lettuce on which I arranged the rest of the Salad ingredients.

Single servings can also be served. Or,,, think maybe as an appetizer ( which would then be smaller portions and can easily be stretched to 8 servings )

My daughter and her fiance stopped by, just as I was arranging the Salad on a serving plate, and she mentioned that it smelled great when they walked through the front door ! That would now be the Shrimp / Bacon mixture, and she just had to taste it. Got a thumbs up from her.

Unfortunately, they could not join us for lunch as it was only a quick stop for them, dropping off their doggie girl, Nahla, who lives with us during the week and my little Dachshund, Dex, who had gone visiting for the weekend.

But I plan on making the Salad soon again and have them over for a proper lunch !

I do not season the Avocado, but instead leave it to each person to season as per their preference - Some like only salt over their avocado, others, salt and black pepper, and someone like myself, avocado without any seasoning.
