Shrimp Cobb Salad

This was a wonderful take on a cobb salad! We all loved the taste and it was delicious the next day too... The presentation of this salad would be great for a potluck, especially if you take the time to layer it in a trifle dish. Since it was just us at home I didn't take the time to pretty it up, but it definitely tastes just as good either way! :) It was a refreshing meal on a hot day!
