    Lorac's Note:

    A lovely shrimp and avocado pasta salad spiked with chopped red chili balanced by fresh basil and cilantro. Serve with crusty bread and sparkling dry Italian white wine. The salad can be made ahead of time and chilled but don't prepare and add the avocado until serving time. This a new recipe from "The Cook's Encyclopedia".

      Absolutely delicious!! I just made it for my family for dinner and they loved it. Since we didn't have a few of the ingredients, I made it without the mayonnaise, cilantro and chili, but it was still wonderful!
