Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad Recipe

Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad

Because there is no cooking involved, this makes a perfect summer potluck dish and the presentation is beautiful. One of my facebook fans mentioned she always brings a trifle dish to a party and gives the host the dish as a gift, cute idea! If you don’t have a trifle dish, you could always layer this in a large platter in neat rows. Shredded chicken can be used in place of shrimp.

As a main course salad this would be more than enough for six people, if you are bringing this to a party where it will be eaten as a side, this would certainly serve a lot more.
