A delicious, refreshing salad. Easy to make, always a hit! Makes a great luncheon or side dish. To make it even easier pick up some ready-to-eat cooked shrimp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the first six (onion, celery, shrimp, chives, pesto, mayonnaise) ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Peel and halve the avocados. Carefully remove the seed.
  3. Slice a thin layer off the bottom of each avocado so it will sit flat.
  4. Using a medium scoop, fill the four avocado halves evenly with shrimp mixture.
  5. Squeeze lime juice over each salad.
  6. Top with chopped tomato.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Made for the Aug Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap + Aug Seafood Photo Challenge, this tag was a selfish 1 as DH is not esp fond of avocado but I adore them as a legacy of my Dallas dys. To my surprise, he liked this a lot. I made it as written using pre-cooked Icelandic baby shrimp & fresh-snipped chives. I took the pic & then added a generous sprinkle of lemon pepper as a shared pers pref. This excellent recipe will be repeated now that I found an avocado dish he really likes. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)
