Lemon Shrimp Pasta Salad

I was inspired by a recipe I saw in a magazine and came up with this mix, it was quite yummy and quite healthy, one great combination.

8 cups of water
1 1/2 cup uncooked rotini
1 1/2 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
pepper to taste
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/2 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 cup spinach
1/2 of a large avocado, chopped

1. Bring water to boil in a large saucepan. Add pasta to pan; cook 5 minutes or until almost tender. Add shrimp; cook 3 minutes or until done. Drain well.
2. Combine pasta and shrimp with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic salt, pepper. Mix well so that every noodle and shrimp is coated.
3. Add all other ingredients, mix and serve. Enjoy!
