RECIPE BACKSTORY
This was a fantastic accidental recipe! I made the suace with all of the veggies and shrimp and served it with pasta one night. There wasn't enough left over for another full serving so I took the sauce with the chunky veggies and shrimp and tossed them in my magic bullet blender and made a great ceviche/salsa. It goes great with tortilla chips. Other chips would work great too.
