I am crazy for fresh shrimp salad. This one was delicious. I really liked the chopped up avocado and the fresh basil. The flavors all went together well. Made a nice lunch for my daughters and me. Thanks Inez.

I made this for lunch and it is wonderful and easy! The creamy sauce is a perfect blend of flavors. Didn't know how the avocado would work, but loved it! I think the recipe would work well with chicken too.
