Shrimp Avocado and Tomato Salad

Shrimp Avocado and Tomato Salad

Shrimp, Avocado, and Tomato Salad include two of my favorite foods together on one plate. Avocado and shrimp. Dee-lish! A great recipe.


This is a Williams-Sonoma recipe which can be served as a salad or a light lunch.

Perfect for a warm day. Fairly easy, too.

The dressing can be made up to 2 hours ahead.
