Shrimp Salad-Stuffed Avocados Recipe

This is one of my husband's favorites, even though it's pretty enough to serve at a ladies luncheon. When I needed a quick main-dish salad for my book club, I just tripled the recipe and got raves! Try it with imitation crabmeat, too. —Suzanne VanAlstyne, Petoskey, Michigan
