Why I Love This Recipe

This layered-salad recipe comes from author and founder, Gina Homolka, of the website and it is delicious! It is Weight Watchers friendly at 6 points per serving and it is hard to stop at one serving! You can easily substitute chicken for the shrimp if you aren't a seafood lover.
