Shrimp, Watermelon, and California Avocado Salad

The bright flavors of lime and cilantro complement the mild flavor of watermelon and the richness of avocado. Hass avocados, the most common variety consumed worldwide, are actually native to California. California avocados are known for their exceptional flavor, adding a delicious, creamy texture and beautiful color to many dishes.
