Shrimp and Mango Salad with Edamame

If you're looking for a bright, refreshing salad packed with protein look no further.  This salad goes from freezer to table in 15 minutes or less.  I always keep frozen shrimp, corn and edamame on hand to add to quesedillas, salads or as side dishes and frozen mango to add sweetness to my smoothies in the morning. 
I recently bought Trader Joe's Reduced Fat Cilantro Dressing and I am an addict.  I meant it, I am putting this on everything.  For this recipe, I cooked the shrimp in a little bit of the dressing to give it a boost of flavor and of course I topped the entire salad off with a little more.  I see a purchasing few more bottles of this in my near future.
