Shrimp, Avocado and Mango Salad

Let me first apologize for this picture. I actually forgot to take a picture of our dinner before we started eating. So unfortunately you are seeing a half eaten shrimp salad haha! Obviously I couldn't wait to tear into this bad boy. Oh my goodness, this is the most light and refreshing salad I have had in a long time. If my mango had been a tad been riper, it would have been even better than it already was. The perfect combination of tart from the lime, hot from the chili, sweet from the mango and savory from the shrimp, make a perfect marriage of flavors! On top of that, this is a no cook recipe. So you can't use the excuse that you don't know how to cook. Do you know how to slice up things with a knife? Do you know how to squeeze a lime? If you answered yes to those, then I'm afraid you are out of excuses. Go chop and squeeze and make this salad so you can see for yourself how great it is!

Recipe Source:

3 Tbsp fresh lime juice 
2 Tbsp olive oil  
1 Tbsp sugar  
2 large ripe mangoes  
2 medium firm-ripe avocados 
2/3 cup thinly sliced green onion
2/3 cup chopped cilantro  
1 Tbsp chopped fresh hot red or green chile  
1 pound  peeled cooked shrimp, tails removed

In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, and sugar until sugar dissolves.
In a large bowl, dice the mangoes and avocados into cubes. Add green onion, cilantro, chile, and shrimp.
Pour the lime mixture over the top and mix gently. Serve cold.
