Four stars rather than five for the simple reason that since lobster is a delicate, sumptuous (and expensive!) meat, I can't see adding strong white onion to it. I left it out, but chose to add some chopped green onion instead - just enough for a hint of its flavor and color contribution. Otherwise, this is an excellent salad, simple with just a few ingredients and unadulterated with distracting seasonings. The yellow pepper and celery are mild flavors, so they add color and texture without being imposing. Because I used lobster tails I did not shred the meat as directed, preferring to leave the lobster in nice, meaty chunks. That too, contributed great color and made the salad especially pretty. I served this on a bed of mixed lettuces alongside a scoop each of egg salad and cottage cheese, and a few sliced tomatoes. That and a bowl of creamy tomato basil soup made for the perfect, decadent, light summer meal. Read More

I am from New England and love lobster salad. This recipe was so, so. Of course it is delicious just due to the lobster. You absolutely need to add a squirt of lemon juice to it. I agree with another reviewer who commented on the onion being too strong. I made this recipe as written and added less onion than called for and it was still too prominent and competed with the delicate taste of the lobster. Leave the onions out or use the green ones.

I love lobster salad and this is delicious. The only thing I did differently was omit the onions because my daughter doesn't like them. Yummy-thankyou! Read More

I subed scallion for the onion and added both red and yellow bell peppers. This made a delicious salad. That said about half way through making the salad I decided to serve it on rolls. So I added fresh basil and parsley a little lemon juice and a (big) splash of hot sauce. Not a true lobster roll but still good. I rated the salad 5 stars as it was delicious before my additions.
