This is delicious served this with creamy cilantro tomatillo dressing.

Because there is no cooking involved, this makes a perfect summer potluck dish and the presentation is beautiful. You can bring a trifle dish to a party and gives the host the dish as a gift! If you don't have a trifle dish, you could always layer this in a large platter in neat rows.

As a main course salad this would be more than enough for 6 people, if you are bringing this to a party where it will be eaten as a side, this would serve 8 to 10.

Variations:

  • Use shredded chicken in place of shrimp.
  • To make this as a meal prep lunch, divide and layer the ingredients in mason jars.
  • Make a lime vinaigrette by combine olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.
