Shrimp Salad

I love this shrimp salad. This recipe is almost the same as the Lobster Salad recipe that I posted some time ago – except that this is so much easier and tastes just as good! I usually use the bags of frozen raw shrimp (with the tails on) you get at Costco – they are great! My younger brother, who is a real foodie,  tried the salad and thought that it was the lobster salad. No more slaving over a hot red lobster for me – from now on this is my go to recipe.
