Why I Love This Recipe
If your looking for an alternate to shrimp cocktail or just want an appetizer for Thanks Giving, Christmas or get together that wont get in the way of a big meal this is prefect. Its light, tangy and full of flavour. serve with toast points or baguette. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavours to blend.
NOTE I had some left over and served it for dinner the next night over rice and DH and son loved it (or even try it over a salad.)
