Jambalaya Salad Bowl

This post is sponsored by McCormick in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own. Jambalaya Salad Bowl was created as a part of this campaign.

Barbecue Shrimp and Chicken Andouille Sausage paired together on a bowl of Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix, Original flavor rice and topped with an Avocado Salad. This Jambalaya Salad Bowl is a delicious and different way to celebrate Mardi Gras!

I’ve never been to New Orleans, but it is on my bucket list to visit this city of intrigue and mystery. The festivities that surround the city at Mardi Gras is something I would love to experience! I imagine the food and celebrations would be unforgettable and amazing. I imagine a foodie heaven filled flavor and textures.

Grumpy and I love our food full of flavor and this Jambalaya Salad Bowl hit the spot to perfection for us. When I told some of my co-workers what I was going to be making, I was told that they would gladly take leftovers. The problem with that was, there were no leftovers! I made up for it by taking them the Nutella Skillet Brownies. I think I was forgiven slightly forgiven.

Since Grumpy and I both work long days, I wanted to make a quick and easy recipe.  I decided to start with the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix, Original flavor, and created a salad topping that came together real quick!

While the rice was cooking I prepped the avocado salad with some lime juice, cilantro and red onion.

I separately cooked the bacon, then the chicken sausage and lastly the shrimp. I then tossed the shrimp in some spicy barbecue sauce.

By this time the rice was ready! I assembled my salad with a bed of rice, then topped with some shrimp, sausage, and bacon, then topped it all off with the fresh avocado salad. A delicious and satisfying meal for any night of the week!

    I have never been to New Orleans either, it is on my bucket list also. I love the idea of making a salad bowl with the Jambalaya. I bet the avocado adds a wonderful creaminess to the dish.
