Recipes: Boston Lettuce With Egg, Anchovy, And Walnuts

This is by far one of the best salads I have ever made; and when you add avocado and shrimp, it is absolutely the finest.  The combination of tastes – the nutty walnuts, creamy avocados, sweet shrimp, and salty anchovies – is near perfect

Boston Lettuce with Egg, Anchovy, Walnuts, Avocado, and Shrimp

This recipe is for one portion; but you can easily double all the ingredients and it will come out fine.

* 5-6 large leaves of Boston Lettuce

* 1 hardboiled egg, quartered

* 2 flat anchovies, coarsely chopped

* 4-5 walnuts, broken into medium pieces

* 1/2 ripe avocado, sliced

* 2-3 cold cooked shrimp, cut into 1/8” pieces

* 2 Tbsp. olive oil

* 2 tsp. red wine vinegar

* salt, ground pepper to taste

- Arrange the lettuce on a large plate

- Place the ingredients (egg, anchovy, shrimp, walnuts, avocado) on top, mixing slightly

- Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar

- Grind fresh pepper and add salt to taste

- Serve (do not toss salad and mixture)
