Today (in honor of Cinco de Mayo, of course), Rachel of Sugar-Coated Inspiration is sharing a delicious recipe for grilled shrimp tacos with purple cabbage coleslaw and cilantro lime-smashed guacamole.  I am a taco fanatic, and since it’s Spring (and nearly Summer … wow, how time flies!), I’m all about super fresh recipes for dinner. Plus, when a girl can’t have margaritas, tacos sure do seem like the next best thing.
