Saucy Mama - Ginger Shrimp & Watercress Salad

I'm having way too much fun thinking up and testing recipes for this Saucy Mama contest! This one is a light salad made up of shrimp, watercress, pineapple, avocado and the delicious Pacific Rim Ginger Dressing from Saucy Mama. There is the peppery watercress, sweet pineapple, creamy avocado, all tied together perfectly with the warm Ginger Dressing and its delicious flavors of ginger, lime, cilantro and garlic. Let me know if you try it!
