Mango Avocado Shrimp Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

From, originally from Sunset magazine. Peaches (fresh or good canned) make a fine substitute if good, ripe mangoes (or canned mangoes) can't be found. The shrimp I've found that were the right size were Canadian shrimp; the fish counter at my supermarket had them available frozen upon request.

Excellent appearance and flavour. I sustituted lemon juice for lime juice and canned mango for fresh and all the family loved it.
