Spring is in the air, making it the perfect time for a light and refreshing snack. In just 30 minutes you can prepare this Fresh Shrimp Salad to serve over greens, with crackers or on a sandwich. This dish is a favorite at my house for welcoming spring.

What is your favorite way to prepare shrimp?
