Shrimp Taco Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ciao4293

This is a recipe I got from a magazine. It is, without a doubt, the best salad I've ever had! Maybe some of you will think so, too! It looks like alot of ingredients, but it's so quick and easy to throw together! My husband requests this ALL THE TIME! The dressing is really a nice mix, too.

This was a really interesting, easy to make salad and just perfect for a hot summer day with enough left over for lunch. I used reduced sodium taco seasoning mix and beans to try to lower the sodium in the salad and used green bell peppers instead of red. Although next time I may add more vegetables (maybe zucchini or other summer squash) this was a great out-of-the-ordinary type of salad.
