Cucumber Bruschetta with Grilled Shrimp & Crab Salad

From Better Homes and Gardens

Grilled shrimp adds irresistible smoky flavor to this vibrant blend of delicate crab meat, sweet peppers, bright citrus, and rich, buttery avocado. Serving the bruschetta atop cool and refreshing cucumber enhances the experience even more. Most of the avocado sold in supermarkets is still in its unripened stage. To ripen, place avocados in a paper bag and set aside at room temperature for 2-4 days. When the fruit is soft to the touch, it is ready for use.
