Shrimp Tostadas

When summer hits we don’t want anything to do with hot dishes, so we love it when we find an excellent recipe that does not need to be cooked.  My Sister-in-Law made this recipe for my husband and we have been enjoying it ever since!  It is beautiful, simple and tasty!

Unfortunately I do not know the original source for the recipe as my sweetheart just took a picture of the ingredients and brought it home, but there is a reference that says Dragonfly Cafe, so it may be the original source, however the recipe I found on line under this name, although similar is not the same recipe that I have.  You can view the other version here.  I am adding my version, to this blog to preserve it and make it more accessible in the future.

Here is the recipe… enjoy!
