Easy to make and a nice change from an ordinary salad. (Although it took longer than 10 minutes prep time -- maybe I chop slowly:-) It really impressed my girlfriend! Read More

This was the first time we made this salad. Many of the ingredients were very standard. There was no "wow" factor. As mentioned in another review we used the liquid from the sautéd shrimp as a dressing. This made the salad way too sour and lemony. All in all the salad was okay but we probably wont make i again.

I pretty much just eyeballed the ingredients. I made a dressing of full fat mayo - lite mayo just doesn't cut it with shrimp imo - sour cream and garlic powder. The butter/lemon/garlic combination is amazing. Absolutely delicious. Thanks Lizzard! Read More

This salad was delicious! I made a lemon vinaigrette dressing with olive oil and fresh lemon juice and just lightly covered everything. Anything else I was afraid would over power all the fresh flavors that come out of this salad. Read More

This salad was surprisingly good! This could make a meal - it was quite filling. Only thing I left out was the cucumbers b/c my husband doesn't care for them. Great recipe!! Read More

This salad was easy and refreshing plan to use it frequently during the summer. Only change was ommitting the celery. Made dressing out of 1/4 C mayo 1/4 C sour cream 3 tsp milk 1 tsp salt 1 tsp celery seed 1 tsp garlic powder and black pepper to taste. In the end I added about 3 T of Newman's oil & vinegar dressing to thin out just a bit. Delicious! Read More

This was creative not in terms of the ingredients or preparation necessarily, but it sure offered creativity when I was looking for something light, quick, easy, healthy, and still used ingredients I had at hand. It suited us just fine, thank you very much. We enjoyed it. Read More
