Go to a Farmer’s Market

Written by Lotus on Sunday, 14 of July , 2013 at 9:55 am


Item number 21 on my Summer 2013 Bucket List was to go to a farmer’s market.  Truthfully, I will do this several times before the summer ends.  On Friday I went to the local market just a few miles from my house.  I purchased the grape tomatoes and cherry heirloom tomatoes in the photo above.  Not pictured: The ham and cheese croissant I nearly devoured on the drive home.

I used a handful of each tomato to make a shrimp salad.  It’s a random mix of my favorite things, so feel free to make it your own.

Shrimp and Avocado Salad

8-10 cooked shrimp

Half an avocado, cubed

1/4 cup fresh or frozen cooked corn

10-15 cherry and/or grape tomatoes, cut to your liking

1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese

Coarse salt, as needed

Mix all in a bowl.  If the avocado is ripe, it will coat all the ingredients as a sort of dressing.  I also like a bit of Green Goddess dressing on top.
