Refreshing Shrimp Salad

I've been craving Costco's shrimp salad and thought I'd try making my own. I love what I came up with, so refreshing and perfect for a light meal, and of course it's low-carb so that makes it even better. You can use low-fat mayo to cut on the fat also if you'd like. This would be lovely served for brunch/lunch in a hollowed out tomato and a sprig of parsley or fresh dill on top for garnish (if putting in a tomato you may want to cut up shrimp a little bit). Can also be served on a bed of green leaf lettuce.

2 pounds medium cooked shrimp
3 stalks celery, diced
3 green onions, minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 c mayonnaise
1 t kosher salt, or to taste
1/2 t fresh ground pepper
1/2-1 t dill weed (fresh or dry)

-Combine everything in a large bowl and chill for at least an hour for flavors to mix.
