Mexican Style Shrimp Salsa ….


We love some salsa, and often combine whatever we have on hand to make them . This shrimp salsa is gluten free , low fat & low in carbs with lots of tomatoes and avocados . We like to eat this Salsa all by itself , with tortilla chips or wrapped in a warm tortilla . There is also no oil or added fat, making this a skinny salsa.
