It is a super easy, healthy, and versatile recipe that is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Shrimp Salad with Avocado, Mango, and Kiwi

Serves 4 hungry people

Ingredients:

2.5 lbs. shrimp, peeled, deveined, sauteéd or grilled with olive or coconut oil, garlic and s&p, cut into 2 or 3 pieces

3 avocados, diced

3 mangos, diced

3 kiwis, diced

4 scallions, white and green parts, diced

½ c packed cilantro, chopped

1 jalapeno with seeds, diced (optional)

juice of 3 limes

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

I serve this at room temp so once your shrimp reaches room temp post cook, put all ingredients in a big bowl and toss. Enjoy!

*What makes this salad so fabulous is you really can’t screw it up. Add more or less of anything you do or do not like. A couple of my favorite modifications are:

-Use the above recipe and add 1 cup of cooked black rice for a heartier meal. Throw in some pistachios or peanuts too!

-If you think the above is too sweet and you would like something a little more tart, try shrimp with grapefruit, avocado, scallions, lemon juice, fresh basil and mint!
