Four stars, but ONLY with one critical modification. As written, the amount of lemon and lime juice is excessive. The citrus taste would have been overpowering, not to mention making this watery. Drastically reduce the juice to 2 T. or less and this is wonderful. I also added more celery than called for. We had this in pita pockets with Romaine lettuce and really enjoyed it--but I know we wouldn't have if I had used all the lemon and lime juice this recipe calls for! Read More

This wasn't what I had in mind when I wanted to make shrimp salad. When I tasted it after I first made it it was very bland so I added celery salt and garlic salt. After it marinated overnight the flavor appeared but the consistency was too runny due to the lemon and lime juice. It was edible but I will not be making this again. Read More

This was awesome. I mixed together the shrimp/celery/green onions (added extra green onions cause I like them) and then added the lemon juice and lime juice. I didn't measure how much I added of each just tried to keep it at lemon:lime 2:1 ratio in the original recipe and didn't add enough for it to get soupy. I also added some crumbled feta cheese and some halved grape tomatoes. I scaled it to feed 4 and then served it as a side dish for 5 people we ate it all. I served it with Hawaiian sweet rolls and pita bread. I liked it best on the hawaiian rolls but it was good on the pita too. Read More

This tasted very good but all the lemon & lime juice made for a runny dressing and a very messy sandwich. Next time I would cut down on the juices. Read More

I would only give this a four star rating (it was good but just not that good) but my DH and kids really liked it anything that passes the test for all three kids and the DH deserves 5 stars Read More

VERY YUMMMY! We loved this quick easy recipe. It has a great citrusy dill flavor that mingles well with the shrimp. I served it in pitas with fresh fruit on the side. It was a very nice change from the usual chicken or tuna salad. Read More
