Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Mango Salad

This month’s Creative Cooking Crew challenge is “stuff it!”

Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Mango Salad

By now my readers know my love for avocados (aguacates), and I always have avocados at my house.

So when the Creative Cooking Crew challenge theme was revealed, I decided to stuffed one of my favorite ingredients with a fresh salad to enjoy during the summer months. I made a shrimp and mango salad with lime and cumin dressing, then I stuffed the salad into the avocados.

This Stuffed Avocado with Shrimp and Mango Salad has a wonderful combination of flavors. It will make a great addition to your next summer party or brunch, or just make it for lunch for your family. Even my kids loved this dish!

I have not forgotten you…I still have to comment on past post. I am just in my place in South Beach and I am just in such a lazy mode.

I was also going to use avocado. Your dish is beautiful and refreshing. Absolutely lovely Erica!
