Shrimp salad a´la moi

We've tried to get a healthy start on the new year as far as the food goes. It has slipped a couple of times I must admit, but now I think we're going somewhere... 

The first healthy dish I made this year was a Shrimp salad with bread on the side (not the healthiest of bread and not home made as I had a bit of bad luck trying out some new bread recipes) but I'd like to share this salad with you, as it's become one of my favourite. 
Shrimp salad a´la Agnethe 
(4 lunch portions or 2 dinner portions)

You'll need:

200 grams Greenlandic or North Sea Shrimp
125 grams cottage cheese
2 spring onions
salt and pepper
1 avocado
10 cm cucumber
3 cocktail tomatoes
1/4 of a lettuce head
1 baguette

Let the shrimp drain and chop the spring onions finely. Mix the cottage cheese and the spring onions and add in the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper, mix it well and set aside.

Dice the avocado, cucumber and tomatoes and chop the lettuce finely. Mix the avocado, cucumber and tomatoes in with the lettuce.

Toast the baguette and slice it. Arrange the lettuce mix in the bottom of a large bowl, top with the cottage cheese and shrimp mix and garnish with dill or another fresh herb you like. Serve the bread along side with butter.

Bon appetit...
