~ Mango, Avocado & Shrimp Salad ~


This is a recipe from Southern Living, eons ago. So easy, something cool to eat and very tasty!


3  T. fresh lime juice
2  T.  grapeseed or vegetable oil
1  T.  sugar  (I only use about 1 tsp. sugar)
 large firm, but ripe mangoes (2 lbs. total)
medium firm-ripe avocados (1 lb. total)
2/3 cup each ~ thinly sliced green onion and chopped cilantro
1  T. minced fresh hot red or green chile (or 1/2 tsp. dried red chile flakes)
1  pound (70 to 110 per lb.) peeled,  cooked shrimp

In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, and sugar until sugar dissolves.
Dice mangoes and avocados into 3/4-in. cubes; add to bowl. Add green onion, cilantro, chile, and shrimp. Mix gently. Serve or cover and chill for up to 1 hour.

This is exactly how we love to eat in the summer. My husband even likes cold salads...although he doesn't eat avocados, which are a favorite of mine. I think this looks wonderful.
