Shrimp Salad with Salsa Sauce

Yes, I know I'm a shrimp lover. Most of my shared recipes here are shrimp dishes. Anyway just came back from an exotic island holiday and guess what I have been eating? Shrimps!!!

Today, will share my Shrimp Salad with Salsa Sauce recipe. Well the truth is, the other night, my husband and I had Mexican take out. Since I really liked the salsa sauce so I experimented, made my own salsa sauce and used it as a dressing on my Shrimp Salad. Why not?!? And believe me, it tastes really good. Hope you enjoy! ;)
