I love the fresh produce available in the summer like peaches, cherries, and of course CORN!  This shrimp salad recipe is light, cool, and easy.  It’s a perfect dinner for a hot day, and you can get it on the table in 20 minutes. Since it’s so good for you, why not serve it up with some Cheddar Ranch Bread? It’s all about balance, am I right?

Thanks, Tanya! And if you don’t spend a half hour prepping the shrimp, it’s easy too ;)
