Oh what a good combination -lime juice, cumin and cilantro is so good together. This salad would be wonderful on a hot summer day or, in my opinion, any day! I am sure that this one will be served the next time I have my girlfriends over. Maybe my hubby will make this for Mother's Day? (hint, hint) The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cilantro Lime Seafood Salad (In An Avocado Boat)
- Stir mayo, juices, peel and all spices together in a bowl to mix well.
- Add crab and shrimp and stir till well coated.
- Cut avocados in half, remove pit, run a spoon around the peel to make it easier to eat, sprinkle well with lime juice, salt and pepper (I also LOVE the GREEN Tabasco sauce for this step but it is optional).
- Load avocados with the salad mixture and enjoy!
These are SOOOOOOO easy and taste GREAT!
