Shrimp and Kale Salad


For this dish we used frozen cooked shrimp. If you have access to fresh shrimp then you can use that instead. For the frozen shrimp, you can either put it in a strainer and run it under cold water for immediate use or you can put it in the fridge and let it thaw out slowly overnight. As for the salad, you can substitute with a cheese you prefer instead and add or remove vegetables depending on preference.
