I have never much liked mangos, but when I saw them on sale at the grocery store I thought I might try a salad using one. It turned out much better than I expected with the addition of some spice. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

• Serves 3

For Dressing:

1/2 tsp fresh grated lime zest

1 Tbls fresh lime juice

1/4 c olive oil

1 Tbsp chopped cilantro

2 tsp finely chopped seeded jalapeno

1/8 tsp salt

For Salad:

1 Tbsp olive oil

12-16 oz peeled & deveined shrimp

1 tsp chili powder

1/8 tsp salt

6 cup torn Bibb lettuce leaves

1 medium ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced

1 medium avocado, pitted peeled and diced

In a small bowl mix the ingredients for the dressing.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, chili powder and salt. Cook, stirring until shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl mix shrimp with mango and avocado add salad dressing.

Arrange lettuce leaves on serving plates. Top with shrimp mixture.
