Paleo in a Food Desert: Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

We had such a treat today for lunch when our supply chain manager Rachel Hunter found a great recipe on Pinterest (we are on there by the way).

Our business manager Dawn Sherman lives in Rapid City (90 miles out), the closest large town to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation where we are located. She picked up all of the ingredients and she and Rachel prepared it in our office kitchen.

It was fresh, quick, paleo and VERY yummy! The recipe is below.

1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped
1 medium tomato, diced
1 Hass avocado, diced
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 limes, juice of
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt and fresh pepper to taste

In a small bowl, combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Let them marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion. Add jalapenos to taste.
