Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Serves: 4

Lime juice and cilantro are the key ingredients to creating this wonderful, healthy salad you’ll want to make all summer long. Made with cooked peeled shrimp and the freshest ingredients – avocados, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and chopped jalapeño tossed with some freshly squeezed lime juice and a touch of olive oil.

Dovetailing tip: Prepare a total of 7 jalapeno peppers today. When preparing the jalapeno peppers (be sure you have rubber gloves on), for Meal 2, dice 1 pepper to use in Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad. For Meal 4, you will use 4 1/2 large jalapeno peppers, sliced in half long ways and seeded to use in Grilled Okra and Jalapeños. For Meal 5, finely mince 1/2 of 1 pepper to use in the Orange Relish. Chop 1 pepper into small pieces to use in the Southwestern Black Bean Salad.
