Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail

I know a lot of people will be partying hardy tomorrow with Cinco de Mayo on tap and this recipe is such a tasty treat to serve up for you and your guests! I really love the combination of flavors in this  dish with the tomato and cilantro. I learned to love cilantro when I worked in a Cuban restaurant as it was a staple in many of the foods that the owners incorporated into so many dishes as well as making a salad out of it!
