I thought the perfect drink to accompany this salad was sparkling water mixed with Acai and Cranberry Juice. Delicious!

Strawberry Shrimp Salad with Strawberry Vanilla Vinaigrette

This salad is healthy, delicious and quick! Strawberries add a nice sweet and tart dimension to salads.
This salad is colorful and full of lots of healthy veggies. Sweet, Savory and Delicious. A salad that is good to you and good for you! The Strawberry Vanilla Vinaigrette adds another layer of flavor to the salad.  Whenever I get the opportunity, I love to make my own salad dressings. They are surprisingly
easy to make and keep in the refrigerator for weeks. Homemade salad dressing, Trumps 
anything you can buy from a bottle.
