Shrimp Cocktail Salad

I was thinking the other day, how much I loved Shrimp Cocktail, and how great it would be to have it in a salad. After a little searching, I came to the conclusion I would use a lemon vinaigrette for the salad dressing, and pre-marinate the shrimp in the cocktail sauce. You can use any cocktail sauce you choose (I made mine as I always do from scratch, which is super easy).

Put anything you like in the salad and viola!, you’ve got a super summer salad!
