On the second Saturday of the month we have a potluck at church so I like to make something different and something everyone would like. Good Cook recently sent me a ProFreshional Avocado Slicer, Citrus Reamer and Citrus Zester  so I decided to make a nice summer salad.  Using my new kitchen tools really helped out; I first used the Avocado Slicer to take the seed out of the middle of the avocado and then I sliced the avocado using my new slicer. It’s a great two in one tool!   I then used the Citrus Reamer to get the juice out of the lime, which got a lot more juice out than I could squeezing by hand.  Then I put the juice over the avocado to help keep it from getting brown.IMG_1454

My salad was a hit and all that was left was an empty bowl.  What I really liked the most about the salad was how colorful and refreshing it was.  I also liked that it was simple to make using my new ProFreshional toolsIMG_1453 from

You can use the imitation crab like I did in the salad I brought to the potluck or you could use shrimp.  The salad can be served by itself or on a bed of lettuce.

When I make it at home for guest I sometimes put it in the empty avocado half.  It looks really good that way, but no matter how you like to serve it is good and the Good Cook tools will make it a snap to make.
