What goes with shrimp salad

The question is what the theme of your shrimp salad recipe? Is it Italian, Asian, or Mexican? That will help determine what will go on your shrimp salad. For a Mexican theme, you will add more Mexican flavors. Like the bean and corn salsa, I added to this Mexican Shrimp Salad. Also, adding avocados will be key for a Mexican salad. Go with the theme, pick out your favorite veggies, decide on which cheese to add and you will make your amazing salad bowl.
