Easy Shrimp Salad Recipe

I love shrimp and I could seriously eat it every day...okay, maybe not every day, but I could certainly eat it several times a week. I love it in casseroles, in salads, steamed, grilled...well, just about any way that I can have it. Today's guest post recipe is courtesy of Executive Chef, Anthony Stewart, at Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa. It looks absolutely delicious!!! I'm not fond of lime juice, but I bet I could substitute with some fresh lemon juice. YUM!
