I found this recipe in a magazine many summers ago and I changed it up to suit my family's taste. The shrimp are served chilled and are so nice on a hot day when you want something cool and easy. The Creamy Buttermilk-Avocado Sauce is so good and it accents the shrimp beautifully! Blessings, Enjoy !
