RECIPE OF THE WEEK – Shrimp Salad – Stuffed AvocadosSlice and peel avocados. Remove seeds. (An easy way to peel is to scoop the avocado out with a serving-size spoon.) Drizzle with a little lemon juice to keep the avocados from turning brown. Mix all other ingredients, including the 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and fill the avocado halves, spooning extra over the top. Serves 4 as a luncheon entrée or 8 as a dinner appetizer.
