    Good but a little plain. Maybe it needed more lime - or even some Chile. But easy to make and healthy! Wasn’t too great the next day.

    I cut down the lime juice to 1 lime as another reviewer suggested. It did not have enough flavor with that change. There is a lot of variation in how much juice you get from individual limes. It is better to say 1 tablespoon of juice, usually from 2 limes rather than the wording given here. It needed something else to boost the flavor. My taste buds were ambiguous.

    I’ve made this several times and it’s always a hit. I mostly serve it over a bed of greens. Great flavors with some kick to it!

    I didn’t like it cold so I cooked everything except the avocado. It was okay in flavor, almost like a guacamole and the recipe was quick so I didn’t mind the taste being underwhelming

    This was really good.
    Had it on warmed corn tortillas, extra avocado, no cilantro. Delicious.

    This recipe looked very easy and tasty, and I wanted something that felt like summer. Cooked shrimp is something I always have in my freezer so all I needed to do was stop by a farm stand for the veggies and limes. It was a fast after work meal that was made in less than half an hour. I chose to serve it stuffed in heirloom tomatoes with grilled thinly sliced southwestern seasoned chicken breast. A yummy 😋 quick after work Paleo dinner.

    Very delicious! But if I could go back I would have tortilla chips to serve it with because it was just like a big version of ceviche.

    Hits all the right spots: simple, quick, light (but filling because of the avocado), and beautifully delicious.

    Second time I made this. Great both times. This time I used a Mayan onion for a sweeter bite. The recipe is super easy, mainly just chopping. As always fresher ingredients make for better food.

    Yummy! I added cucumber for some crunch.
