  1. Scoop out meat from each avocado half, and cube. Reserve the peels. Place cubes in a bowl. Sprinkle cubes and inside of peels with lemon juice.
  2. In the bowl with avocado, gently mix the shrimp, peas, olives, onion, and celery. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Fold in enough mayonnaise to evenly moisten all ingredients. Spoon the mixture into the reserved peels, and serve within 1 hour.

I can see this served at a summer luncheon. I omitted the mayonnaise, mostly because I forgot it, but honestly, I don't think it is needed. I also substituted diced red pepper in place of the ...

Made this as a side dish for ribs and chicken. Other than omitting the shrimp I followed the recipe and was very happy with the result. Will be making it again.

This was good. I used red peppers instead of the olives and halved the mayonnaise. Ultimately, I'm not sure all the additions add much, if anything, to the avocado.

We love this salad and I make it all the time. I have used plain yoguat instead of mayonnaise and it is very good.
