Avocado Salad with Grilled Shrimp

I know what you're thinking and yes, this tastes as good as it looks. It might be one of my favorite things I've eaten in a while! I love how grilling season comes with warmer weather. It brings out so many more cooking options!!

The portion shown here could easily be an appetizer. For a more substantial meal just place the avocado salad and 4 or 5 pieces of shrimp on top of lettuce.
