Simple Shrimp Avocado Salad

My family loves shrimp AND avocados so what’s better than a shrimp avocado salad!  I try out a lot recipes and some are good and others not so good.  This one is a HUGE winner.  It doesn’t take long to prepare and it’s great when the weather is warm and you don’t want to turn on the oven.  It’s prefect for a summer lunch when the kids are at home and you want something a little different.

I normally keep frozen cooked shrimp in the freezer.  It’s easy to pull out when you don’t have  a lot of time.   I have a bunch of shrimp recipes here that are all kid approved! When I get home after 7 from practices and everyone’s starving, I want a fast meal.  Shrimp is perfect to have around for these nights.  My daughter likes to help out in the kitchen and is my official tail remover.
