Marinated Shrimp Salad

During the hot summer months, I love eating all types of salads.

That includes fruit salads, grain salads, bean salads, veggies salads, meat salads (yes there is such a thing, like this Grass-fed lamb and Quinoa Salad), and of course… shrimp salad!

Salads of all kinds are generally light, refreshing, cooling, and easy to prepare.

For example, the Shrimp Salad below takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

You can eat it as soon as it’s ready, or if you are patient, let it marinate for 30 minutes to enhance its delicious flavor.

Enjoy!
