Ingredients

  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 3/4 cup nonfat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as tarragon, sorrel and/or chives
  • 2 teaspoons tarragon vinegar, or white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste, or minced anchovy fillet
  • 8 cups bite-size pieces green leaf lettuce
  • 12 ounces peeled and deveined cooked shrimp, (21-25 per pound; see Ingredient note)
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 cup rinsed and chopped canned artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery

Directions

  1. Puree avocado, buttermilk, herbs, vinegar and anchovy in a blender until smooth.
  2. Divide lettuce among 4 plates. Top with shrimp, cucumber, tomatoes, chickpeas, artichoke hearts and celery. Drizzle the dressing over the salads.
  3. Tips: Ingredient note: Shrimp is usually sold by the number needed to make one pound. For example, "21-25 count" means there will be 21 to 25 shrimp in a pound. Size names, such as "large" or "extra large," are not standardized, so to be sure you're getting the size you want, order by the count (or number) per pound. Both wild-caught and farm-raised shrimp can damage the surrounding ecosystems when not managed properly. Fortunately, it is possible to buy shrimp that have been raised or caught with sound environmental practices. Look for fresh or frozen shrimp certified by an independent agency, such as Wild American Shrimp or Marine Stewardship Council. If you can't find certified shrimp, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America--it's more likely to be sustainably caught.
  4. MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate the dressing (Step 1) for up to 1 day.
