Mexicali Shrimp Salad


Today's recipe brings us south of the U.S. border for a simple, colorful, healthful Mexican-style salad chock full of fiber- and antioxidant-rich veggies.

Like other shellfish, Shrimp don't contain as many omega-3s as fatty fish like Tuna, Sardines, Sablefish, or Salmon do.

Nonetheless, the ¼ lb. of Shrimp in each serving of this recipe provides a very substantial 480 mg of omega-3s (EPA+DHA), which is more than most fish oil capsules contain!
