Potato, Avocado and Shrimp Salad

Four ripe avocados were in the basket in my kitchen for two days while I was trying to figure out what to make with them. I eat so many avocados that sometimes I don’t know how to eat them in a different way.

So I decided to make a Potato, Avocado and Shrimp Salad and it was easy and delicious. You can’t go wrong adding avocados to a salad!
This salad is perfect for the hot summer days ahead :)

Buen Provecho!

    I have two avocados rolling around on my counter and some nice shrimp; this is a most excellent idea, especially as it’s been so warm here lately.

    Now, this is the kind of potato salad I could eat all summer! It’s colorful, creamy and undoubtedly delicious. I love the use of creme fraiche (I need to make some more). This will definitely be found on the table this summer – perfect accompaniment for when we grill outdoors!
