Here in the Northeast we are experiencing a hotter than hot heat wave. It is too hot, even for me. So who wants to cook on day like today? No one. (And that includes grilling, especially grilling.) I give you a super tasty, really easy shrimp salad that is perfect for a day like today; cool and delicious!

1 ripe avocado, diced

1 Tbs fresh squeezed lemon juice, toss with avocado

1/2 tsp dill

1/2 tsp celery seed

Instructions:

Whisk together dressing ingredients. Place the salad ingredients into a salad bowl, except the feta, pour the dressing over the salad. Toss the salad gently so you don’t mess up the avocado. Sprinkle with the feta cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve, enjoy and stay cool!
