Shrimp BLT

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MrsSpike34

This recipe originates from Food and Wine, my sister in law passed it along. It is FANTASTIC! Great as a salad on a bed of greens, served it on toasted sandwich rounds (the 100 cal ones) on croissants or as an hor d'oeuvre as originally intended on toasted baguette rounds.

This is really delicious. I chose to make it into an open face sandwich for a light supper. Made for The Circus Has Come Photo Tag Event. :)
