Mango and Shrimp Salad

Welcome back to The Salad Bar.  Our community of food bloggers providing you with salad recipes.  This month Wendy from The Weekend Gourmet has chosen Asian-Inspired Salads for all of us to share with our readers.

I have a passion for Asian-Inspired dishes.  I have made plenty of incredible salads too.  I was stumped as to what I could create that I hadn’t created already. I had a few test recipes that I wasn’t happy with, but ended up with this Mango and Shrimp Salad.
