      Note: the spicy-ness of this salad depends completely on the picante/salsa that you choose, because otherwise it does not contain any particularly spicy ingredients. Ancho chile powder is not very spicy at all - rather, it's smokey - so if you don't want it spicy, don't use picante/salsa that's too spicy for you.

      This salad had such a nice flavor. Wish I would of had hot picante sauce but I only had medium. Would of liked it spicier. But it was delicious anyways. Served it over a bed of Romaine lettuce leaves. I did cut this recipe down to serve just the 2 of us. I had cooked the shrimp in some chicken broth to give them a little extra flavor. I usually do this when I use cooked shrimps in salads. This salad made for a great lunch, very light and refreshing. Thanks for sharing Julesong.

      *This is the best!* I would love to take this to a potluck since it's so unique and flavorful. It is quite spicy but balanced with the cold shrimp and bites of sweet papaya. I used Pace Salsa Verde which added some green color, and only needed half a papaya since we get the very large ones here. Love that this is not only tasty but healthy too!
