Tasty Tuesday--Cold Marinated Shrimp & Avocados

So, I don't know if you've noticed, but I really like shrimp. And avocados. And this recipe has them both! It's such a refreshing, cold salad for summertime. It's healthy, too! I plan on making this for our family beach week! Perfect cold lunch after roasting in the hot sun.

2 ripe avocados, chopped
1 cup fresh cooked corn *I used frozen*

1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 garlic clove, pressed
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil

Combine the first 5 ingredients. Gently stir in the lime vinaigrette to coat. Cover and chill at least one hour.
