Recipe wanted: Florida Salad

pwhitten | Aug 31, 2011 08:01 PM

A few years ago, I saw a recipe in a column in a newspaper for Florida Salad, and I would really like to make it again, but I don't remember everything that went into it.

It was not a standard recipe, apparently it is meant to be something that Florida natives would throw together with what they had on hand. As I recall, it had cooked, peeled shrimp, chunks of Florida avocado, chunks of mango and/or papaya, and a citrus vinagrette dressing.

Does anyone have any knowledge of such a salad? I don't think it had any salad greens in it, mostly shrimp, avocado and tropical fruit. I'm sure there were other things in it, maybe some red onion?

Thanks for your help,
