Recipe Notes
  • You can purchase cooked shrimp for this recipe, but poaching or grilling your own makes for an even more flavorful shrimp salad.
  • I love using leftover Margarita Grilled Shrimp in this recipe. In fact, I often grill an extra pound of shrimp and put it aside to make two meals in one.
  • Eat this salad within 1-2 days of making it and be sure to keep it chilled in the refrigerator.
  • I suggest serving the shrimp salad in Boston or Bibb lettuce cups, over a green salad, or it makes a delicious sandwich or shrimp roll.
