I like my summer salads full of color, fresh ingredients and tropical flavor. This salad combines all of those elements into a light and tasty meal.

A rich avocado dressing tops this salad of fresh spinach, mangos and shrimp, perfect for a party or a simple family summer supper.

Directions

  1. Place half of one avocado, water, salsa verde, lime juice and honey in a blender.
  2. With the blender on puree, blend until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, cucumber, mango, red pepper and cilantro.
  4. Divide the spinach and remaining avocado onto six plates, top with shrimp mixture, and drizzle with dressing.
