No-Cook Summer Salad

This Caribbean inspired salad is easy to put together for a quick lunch or for a fresh summertime starter because it uses pre-cooked shrimp. Also, the protein from the shrimp, the antioxidant-rich mango, and good fat from the avocado make this a perfect healthy salad.

  • 2 tablespoons organic olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
  • 2 large firm ripe organic mangoes
  • 2 medium firm ripe organic avocados 
  • 1/3 cup each thinly sliced green onion and chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh hot red  chile (or 1/2 tsp. dried red chile flakes)
  • 1 pound peeled cooked wild or organic shrimp
Preparation
  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, and maple syrup.
