Shrimp, Avocado and Spinach Salad
2 tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp. seasoned pepper
6 T. red wine vinegar
1 ½ tsp. olive oil
8 c. fresh spinach, washed, stemmed, torn into bite-size pieces
½ avocado, peeled, pit removed, cut into ¾ in. pieces
½ lb. cooked shrimp, patted dry
6 medium mushrooms, cleaned, sliced ¼ in. thick
½ medium red onion, peeled, thinly sliced and separated into rings
In a small bowl or jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the sugar, tarragon, mustard and pepper. Add the red wine vinegar and olive oil, then whisk, or cover the jar with the lid and shake, until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to use.
