Start any meal with Avocado Shrimp Salad from Patricia Collins of Imbler, Oregon. Patricia made a delightful cilantro-lime dressing that lightly coats the romaine, avocado and shrimp. The tart dressing has a bit of a jalapeno kick, but feel free to cut back on the peppers, if necessary.

"Didn't find this salad all that great. The dressing is too vinegary for us, although others may like it. I would not make it again w/out some adjustments!"
