Watermelon and Shrimp Salad

Pat Duran


This is such a refreshing salad. I had this wonderful salad at one of the Casino's here in Las Vegas..A little out of focus, because I took the photo on the sly-Shhh. Just make your own shrimp salad or tuna salad or chicken salad to put this together if you like...Something different to WOW your family or guests or club members or lunch on the patio with hubby!
