Make sure shrimp is completely unfrozen, if you buy it already cooked, and patted dry with paper towels.

Assemble all ingredients with shrimp in a bowl except lettuce and mix.

Turned out great. Loved the plump shrimp along with the creamy avocado in the tomato lemon dressing, refreshingly tasty, and looked nice as well. Photo just uploaded.
