TIPS FOR MAKING SIMPLE SHRIMP AVOCADO SALSA
Don’t let the amount of chopping scare you off from this recipe. It’s really pretty simple and once you have everything chopped, it’s just a matter of stirring everything together. I prefer to chill this Simple Shrimp Avocado Salsa for at least an hour to let the flavors blend together, but if you’re short on time, you can serve it right after making it.
Can this be made ahead?
Yep! As I mentioned above, the preferred method of preparation is to let it chill at least an hour. You can actually make it up to a day before which makes it great for parties or when you need to bring something to a potluck.
Can it be frozen?
I would advise against freezing this salsa although I’ve never tried it! I’m not sure how the avocado and tomato would fare after freezing. It would probably still taste fine but the texture and quality of the ingredients would be better when they are fresher.
