In about 25 minutes, you can enjoy this delicious juicy salad that brings color and taste to your table.
I made this salad a few weeks ago for a surprise birthday party, it was a Mexican-themed night, so I thought these fajita shrimps would be a perfect match.
But it’s not only the shrimps, but the refreshing taste of the spicy-sweet lime dressing and the mango pickled in rum that makes this salad so special.
Serve it as a starter or as a light lunch with crispy nachos.
