Simple Shrimp Salad (Paleo)

I first made this recipe for my first July 4th celebration in America.

Back then I had no idea that people make hot dogs, burgers, wings, potato salad and all that good stuff on this special day.  So of course, I turn up at our family friend's potluck offering a huge bowl of this shrimp salad.


Surprisingly though it was a hit! It provided a light, healthier option which seemed to be popular among the guests. Now we enjoy this shrimp salad as a staple dish throughout the hot summer months, and of course, at every July 4th party we go to.
