karbol is right this is a light and refreshing salad with nice presentation and breaks down well nutritionally. The flavor of this salad is mellow/mild so don't forget that little splash of rice vinegar just before serving as I think it's important to the overall taste of this recipe. The recipe calls for hot chile peppers so I used red pepper flakes and will increase the amount in the future. Although not by most people's calendar it's already summer in Florida has been for a while and this will be a perfect main course summer salad served over a bed of crisp salad greens. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Fantastic dance of flavor. Sweet and tangy, cool and spicy all in the same bite! I increased lime juice to 2 limes, and one teaspoon red pepper flakes. Increased sugar to full teaspoon. Added a cup of fresh pineapple pieces. Tossed together with mint and cooked shrimp and served on bed of Romaine. Wonderful colors and flavor. Easy to make. Thanks for the recipe! 5 stars! Read More

Great light recipe with little effort! I added fresh pineapple because we had some on hand; husband thought the pineapple was essential I think it was a nice addition but not necessary. I'm thinking about putting it on a bed of romaine lettuce for lunch. Perfect recipe as-is wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for the fantastic recipe! Will be a staple over the summer for sure!

i made this salad for a Hawaiian themed dinner. I tripled the recipe but did not add the chilies. Took the suggestion of others and added red peppers and pineapple for color... it made a beautiful presentation. the vinegar was key to the flavor. next time I will add the chilies as it needed a bit of kick. and there will be a next time!??
