This is delicious served this with creamy cilantro tomatillo dressing.

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.

Variations:

  • Shredded chicken can be used in place of shrimp.
  • To make this as a meal prep lunch, divide and layer the ingredients in mason jars.
  • Make a lime vinaigrette by combine olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.
