Shrimp and Avocado Salad
It's simple enough for a weeknight dinner-yet festive enough to serve to weekend guests.

Hass avocados from Mexico-the ones with the pebbly skin-are renowned for their high quality. Fruit that yields to the touch is ready to use. Firm avocados should be stored at room temperature until they soften. After that, refrigerate.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe Mexican Hass avocado
  • 3 cups bite-sized salad greens
  • 3 cups bite-sized fruit such as halved seedless grapes, diced mango or pineapple
  • 1/2 cup prepared oil and vinegar dressing
  • 1 pound peeled, cooked shrimp
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges

Directions:

Cut avocado lengthwise around middle; remove pit with a knife blade; twist to separate halves; scoop out flesh; cut in wedges. In a bowl, toss fruit with half of the salad dressing; transfer to 4 plates.

Arrange avocado and shrimp on top; drizzle with remaining dressing. Serve with lime wedges.

Serving Size: Makes 4 Servings
