This has a tangy lime dressing. Peaches or mango can be used instead of nectarines. Make sure they are ripe. Buy precooked shrimp to save time. Cook time is chilling time.

I love the flavors in this salad, and it was nice how quick and easy it was to make. The nectarines were my favorite part- I love them, but have never had them in a salad. I added a chopped serrano salad to the mixture, so my salad was very spicy as well as sweet. [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]
