This salad is very Mexican with California style. It’s really quick to put together and surprisingly delicious. You can serve as a salad on extra greens, or with corn chips as a salsa cruda.

This can be put together in just a few minutes if your garlic is already roasted. If you need a recipe for that, don’t panic. I have one right here:

Oven Roasted Garlic

The shrimp I used is the salad shrimp that is sold frozen in small bags for just a few dollars. You might not, at first thought, think there is a whole lot that can be done with those, but they can be very versatile.

In all, this made a delicious dinner for two as a seafood salad that I would imagine costing quite a bit more, so do give this a try.

I hope you enjoy!
