Cold Supper for a Hot Day

It’s full-on summer here, which means it’s (usually) hot and humid. Terribly, awfully, stickily humid. Even with modern air conditioning, for which I’m grateful, hot days mean cold suppers.

I think it was the Sydney Morning Herald that published an interesting article on red and green holiday recipes. Of course Christmas and New Years are hot weather holidays down under!

I took the idea of a red and green shrimp salad and played around with it. I like to use fresh local radishes, crunchy and crisp, and put them with avocados and cold cooked shrimp. Neither avocado nor shrimp are local foods here, but for this salad, I can let that slide. Local or not, this is one terrific salad.
