Shrimp Salad (In Ten Or Fifteen Minutes)

Summer is here.  For me that means salad time.  I love to eat lighter in the summer whenever possible.  I was pressed for time today, with one thing and another happening.  Having cut veggies in the fridge and shrimp in the freezer I thought I would have a salad for lunch. This recipe is light and you can add shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams or even any kind of meat that you might have on hand.  Just have fun with it.  This is my version.
