Honey Garlic Shrimp, Corn, and Avocado Bacon Salad…the perfect quick fix salad. Almost no-cook, comes together in minutes, and is so easy! Honey garlic seared shrimp cooked together with bacon. Then tossed up in a fresh salad with romaine, grilled corn, salty feta, and creamy avocado. The herby dressing makes everything even better. This salad is the simplest to put together, yet flavorful, filling, and pretty healthy too.

It’s a salad, but it’s not like any other salad. We all know how I feel about salads. If it’s boring, I don’t want it. But, if it’s a real deal, colorful, flavorful, dinner type of salad?

I’m all about it.

That’s 100% this salad. There’s nothing boring about it and it’s beyond delicious.

The inspiration for this salad ended up coming from a handful of different recipes. In the end, this salad transformed into something totally new and different from any other recipe I’ve done before. I love so much when a recipe starts out as an OK idea (as this one did) and then truly develops into something incredible.

This salad is quick and easy – here are the details

In keeping with my theme of quick, quick, quick summer recipes, this is one of my fastest yet. It all begins with the dressing, which is the key to adding really great flavor. It’s sweet, spicy, tangy, and just perfectly garlicky.

Once you have the dressing made, the rest is super quick.

Before you start cooking the shrimp, cook the bacon.

Toss the shrimp with some of the dressing, then sear it in a skillet. The shrimp ends up caramelizing a bit and becomes crispy and delicious.

The bacon and shrimp are the only things that need to be cooked, the rest is simply assembling!

Next, assemble

Grab lots of fresh salad greens, then toss them together with some grilled corn and tomatoes and add the dressing. Next, I like to top the greens with the shrimp, bacon, and feta cheese.

This will give the salad a beautiful presentation!

You can enjoy this warm or cold, but I prefer the shrimp right out of the skillet while it’s still warm and crispy.

Totally and completely delicious, but yet still simple to make!

I realize I say this often, but this recipe really is so good. I love the color, the flavors, the textures, and of course, just how easy it is to make!

It’s one of those recipes that you’ll crave time and time again…all summer long.

    I love this recipe! I didn’t have fresh rosemary, so I used fresh basil and parsley. I’ll try it with rosemary next time. I will be making this again!

  5. My family is OBSESSED with this salad, but mostly the dressing. We’ve made the salad twice, but we’ve made the dressing with just a green salad five times this month.

    I just made this and it’s sooo delicious! I was craving something fresh and almost no-cook since we’re having a heat wave here. I substituted chicken in place of shrimp cause that’s what I had on hand. And replaced feta with cojita. And ok, I may have added some extra bacon. Will absolutely put this into regular rotation. Love it! Thanks for the recipe, as always!
