RICHMOND, Va - We took a run to the border with Cookbook Co-authors Allie Cushing and Monica Van Cleve. The sisters made a tasty South of the Border Shrimp Salsa straight from the pages of their cookbook, ‘Girls with Crabs.’ For more information visit www.GirlswithCrabs.com.
South of the Border Shrimp Salsa:
So cool and refreshing to look at, and to eat! The best thing about this salsa is you can alter all of the ingredients to your liking. We are always heavy-handed with fresh limes, jalapenos, garlic and cilantro……and we like a few extra dashes of hot sauce, too!’ Makes 5 cups
