Additional Questions and Answers to the Recipe

Q: Can this salad be prepared in advance?
A: To maintain freshness and prevent the avocado from turning black, it is advisable to prepare the salad just before serving. However, you can prepare the grapefruit supremes and shrimp in advance and assemble them with the avocado and mayonnaise shortly before serving.

Q: Is there an alternative to mayonnaise for a lighter version?
A: For a lighter option, you can use Greek yogurt or vegetable mayonnaise. A vinaigrette made with olive oil and lemon juice can also be a tasty alternative.

Q: How can we increase the protein content of this salad?
A: To enrich this salad with protein, consider adding quartered hard-boiled eggs, or increasing the amount of shrimp. Pieces of grilled chicken breast or firm tofu would also be good additions.

Q: What wines pair well with this salad?
A: A light, fruity white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, would perfectly complement the freshness and delicate flavors of this salad. For a bolder touch, a dry rosé could also be a great choice.

Q: Can other types of shrimp be used if Matane shrimp are not available?
A: Yes, of course. If Matane shrimp is not accessible, opt for other small cooked shrimp or even cocktail shrimp cut into small pieces. The important thing is to choose good quality shrimp to preserve the delicate taste of the salad.
