A power salad that revitalizes and quenches is one we can get behind. Packed with plump shrimp, creamy avocado and juicy pineapple, this salad also benefits from a double dose of cooling cucumber. Think of it as a spa day for lunch.

Ingredients

Cucumber Water

Salad

Preparation

Cucumber Water

  1. In a blender, purée all the ingredients until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve, but don’t press down to keep the liquid as clear as possible. Season with salt and pepper. Keep refrigerated.

Salad

  1. Place the shrimp in a small pot of cold salted water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Drain and plunge into cold water. Peel the shrimp and cut in half horizontally. Place in a bowl.
  2. Add the cucumber, avocado, green onion and pineapple to the shrimp. Mix gently. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the cucumber water among four shallow plates. Top with the shrimp salad and garnish with the herbs.
