Crab and Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Oranges pork loin roast with pineapple

Happy Monday! Today I'm feeling generous so I'm doing a two for one on the blog ;) I'd like to share with you a two course meal. You can have these two dishes on the same meal or they could go separate ways, that's totally up to you. 

The first one is a salad. Considering the scorching heat we are suffering lately this is hands down the most appetizing meal at the moment.

Crab and Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Oranges
12 shrimp cooked
1 or 2 oranges
Cooked crabmeat
1 large ripe avocado pitted, peeled and diced
Marinated onions 

  • To make the marinated onions combine onions, vinegar, salt and sugar. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften and mellow the flavor of the onion
  • Arrange the crab, shrimp, orange segments, avocado cubes and greens in a shallow bowl or platter
  • Scatter the onion and drizzle the dressing

I'm pretty sure the main course is going to become your new favorite way to have pork. Perfect, golden meat that mixes its salty taste with the sweet ripe pineapple. A mouthwatering dish packed with flavor.
