Cut the olives into quarters and add them. Add the shrimp to the boiling water and boil for 2 minutes, remove from the heat and let cool in the water. When cool, peel them and set them aside. Just before serving, peel and cut the avocados in halves, lengthwise, remove the seeds, slice them thinly, lengthwise, arranging them in a pinwheel design on dinner-sized plates for a more dramatic presentation. Squeeze lemon juice over the avocado slices to prevent discoloration. Pour the remaining salad dressing over the shrimp, add the peppers, green onions and black olives and combine. Add the mushrooms and fold gently together. Immediately spoon the mixture into the center of the pinwheel.
