This is something I grew up with. My Mom had no real recipe. She just kept adding, until she thought it looked good! So I put it down on paper, (Mom would also add green pepper, I'm not a fan of peppers, that's just me!) We love this salad made with the shrimp, but it's also delicious with grilled chicken breast too! Give it a try, hope you like it!
