Mango and Shrimp Salad – Refreshing summer salad that combines the delicious flavors of lime, mango, and grilled shrimp.
But, I’m just dropping in for the second time today to let you know that I’m all about that shrimp, ’bout that shrimp, ’bout that shrimp… ERRR! Meghan Trainor is on zee brain.
I’m here to let you know that this mango and shrimp salad is super simple to prepare and you will not be able to keep your fork out of it. That’s all.
AND it’s zesty and filling, packed with fresh summer ingredients making it the ideal warm-weather side dish. M’kay?
With grilled shrimp, chunks of mango, sliced grape tomatoes, chopped red onions and a delicious dose of garlic, the recipe comes together in just 25 minutes. The best part is that all the flavors work so well together that there’s just no need for extra salad dressing. The lime juice and cilantro are perfectly enough.
This was, in a word, FABULOUS.
