The combination of flavors and textures – especially the creamy mayonnaise dressing spiked with Worcestershire and chili sauce – is sensational. This salad has shrimp combined with avocado and a Louis-style dressing. Bay shrimp and creamy avocado are a perfect match, especially with a crisp vinaigrette. Arrange the shrimp over the salad and drizzle the remaining citrus dressing on top. Scatter the toasted pumpkin seeds on top and serve right away.
