Shrimp and Avocado Salad

This is a lovely salad recipe that is great as a side salad or as a light luncheon recipe. Serve it in lettuce cups for lunch along with some fresh crusty bread and a great dessert. Just perfect!
  • 1 pound frozen cooked shrimp, thawed
  • 1 cup celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Italian salad dressing
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Combine the shrimp, celery, Italian dressing and mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill, covered until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, peel and dice the avocado. Mix immediately with the lemon juice to prevent the avocado from going dark. Add to the shrimp mixture and mix gently.
