3. Prepare the shrimp: Rinse shrimp and pat dry with a paper towel. Add about 1/3 cup of dressing and toss to coat. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.

4. String shrimp onto wooden or metal skewers for grilling. Grill over high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill, let cool, them remove from skewers  (Or place shrimp skewers on a heated panini. Close the lid and grill for 90 seconds. Remove from panini maker).

5. In a large bowl, combine the salad mango, avocado and grilled shrimp. Add dressing to taste; toss lightly and serve.

  1. I just noticed your blog by happenstance and read that you have Crohn's Disease. My mother had that and found that the cookbook she got from the Mayo Clinic which dealt specifically with recipes for that disease as well as other intestinal diseases helped her. And they had the most amazing recipe for almond bread I have ever eaten but that's just a plus. Good luck. Barbara

  2. Thank you so much Barbara! I'll look around for that cookbook! I'm always on the lookout for recipes that will 'agree' with my condition :)
