    Spicy Shrimp Stuffed Avocado Salad

    One thing I’ve learned from my recent travel is that I do not incorporate enough raw fruits into recipes or my daily diet. It occurred to me when I was in Nigeria and Colombia, where I was readily enjoying fresh fruits.  Incorporating fruits into recipes add both flavor and the hint of sweetness to take your
