Avocado & Tomato Salad Topped with Grilled Shrimp
If you are looking for a wonderfully light but flavorful meal, this one right here is delicious!!! Its so incredibly simple, comes together really quickly and minimal cooking on these hot days! I toasted up corn tortillas in the oven, topped that with a simple avocado tomato salad and on top of that some nice big grilled shrimp. On the side, an ear of corn! I've also got a little bonus idea at the bottom for an awesome salad to use up extra shrimp!
