This easy shrimp salad contains no lettuce. It's perfect for barbeques or as a 'change of pace' dinner side dish. Customize this recipe with your favorite salad dressing in place of the lime juice. The lime gives it a tiny tangy kick.

This is a wonderfully elegant trio of seafood in a refreshing and tangy sauce! This three seafood ceviche is worth trying! worth trying. Serve it in martini or margarita glasses and garnish with cilantro leaves and slices of lime. Serve with chips. I make everything ahead and marinate, but don't put the avocado in until close to serving.
