This salad was super easy and tasted so fresh. I sauteed the shrimp but grilling would be great, too. I let them cool for a bit and tossed the whole business together. I've found a new staple for busy weeknights or a quick Sunday lunch!

It was so easy to make and so good and pretty. I sauteed my shrimp with garlic for extra flavor. Liked the dressing. Will definitely make again.

This salad was delicious!
