Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

The challenge:

1. Food for a bridal shower
2. Not too heavy (she was watching her weight for the wedding)
3. Elegant/interesting enough for a wine-tasting themed party

The answer: Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad, thanks to the powers of Pinterest and DJ, RN.

Yummy, summery, and moderately healthy?  We served it with tortilla chips but you could probably just eat it with a fork.

Thanks to Gina of SkinnyTaste!
