Shrimp, Mango, and Avocado Salad Cups

We’re lucky enough to have a rotating supply of sweet mangoes sent our way all year long. (By now, you’ve probably received a few in your weekly box.) It’s hard to hold back from immediately digging in, but we do like to save some for recipe testing. Here, our take on refreshing mango salad. It’s a simple (and elegant) salad with shrimp and avocado. Perfect for a protein-filled lunch or light dinner in minutes.

Recipe sounds great but in my box the mangos were tasteless, pears were hard and tasteless.. I was very disappointed. I will give Misfits another try but if no improvement I will cancel. Thank you
