Ever have one of those days where you just feel like eating something light and refreshing especially with this hot weather? Yesterday was one of those days for me. I was pretty much sick of eating chicken or red meat and needed some change. One of the dishes I prepared was this delicious super easy shrimp avocado salad. It’s the perfect appetizer or side dish to any meal even a perfect lunch that can be made ahead of time. The radishes and nuts give a nice crunch while the mangoes add a subtle sweetness to the tangy salad. You can even substitute the mangoes for sweet corn if you prefer; they both would do the salad justice. Also, I highly recommend trying the Green Goddess dressing from Trader Joe’s. It pairs perfectly with this salad and would act as a great dip or spread on a sandwich as well.
