Hi friends!  Today for lunch, I made this wonderful, light, refreshing, crisp salad for my mom and I.  It is a perfect salad for this August heat!  Although it is light, it is a very filling salad.  Every bite has little bits of shrimp and creamy avocado with cilantro and toasted walnuts.  It is SO delicious!  I just love to find a perfect salad!

    What a great combination of flavors and perfect for all the southern heat and humidity that’s still happening in our area! I’m loving any salads using heirloom tomatoes or anything with fresh corn. Thanks for sharing such a lovely recipe with us!

      Sounds good! Grilled corn would be good in a salad also! YUM! Thank you!
