  • Reserve

To Plate

  • First, remove the stem from the butter lettuce.
  • Carefully wash the leaves to remove any excess dirt and spin dry.
  • Dress the leaves with the vinaigrette, making sure to get every part of the leaves.
  • Arrange the lettuce in four bowls, starting with the large leaves on the bottom and moving to the small leaves to form the shape of a flower.
  • Using a spoon, sprinkle the diced egg, cornichon and the celery evenly on top of the four salads.
  • Marinate the shrimp with a little of the vinaigrette and distribute evenly between the four salads.
  • Drizzle the Louie dressing liberally over each salad.
  • Place the remaining Louie dressing on the table for those who enjoy a little extra with their salad.
  • Cut the avocado into four pieces lengthwise and then separate from the pit.
  • Peel away the skin from each avocado piece and lay them on a cutting board.
  • Slice each quarter of avocado 3/4 of the way up.
  • Season with salt and pepper and then fan out on top of each salad before serving.
