This is a great salad! I made it this past weekend for my family they all loved it. However I think the recipe was meant to be used with 'balsamic vinagarette salad dressing' instead of the balsamic vinegar. That's what I did and it turned out great! Read More

I made it exactly as listed and it just wasn't great. I like all of the ingredients but the balsamic vinegar wasn't a great choice of "sauce". It made a really dry salad. Perhaps I should've tried the balsamic VINEGARETTE as others suggested. Read More

This is a very good summer type salad. I used Italian dressing and only used the shrimp. It was very yummy. Read More

Made without chicken. Used balsamic vinegarette dressing as another reviewer suggested. I shredded carrot rather than diced it. It was a beautiful salad and it is a definite have again. May use more dressing next time. Read More

Wonderful summer salad. Left out the tomatoes but added crushed nuts cashews and almonds a two hard boiled eggs. I also pan fried the chicken in olive oil coated in montreal seasoning. I made my own balsamic dressing too (with a bit of brown sugar which added) It was so delicious! Read More

I really enjoyed this pasta salad. I used elbow macaroni because it's what I had. I also used a low fat balsamic vinaigrette which everyone added to their own pasta at the table. I served this with Chloe's Quick Fruit Salad for an easy fast summer dinner. Read More

This was good but it could have used a little more shrimp and feta in my opinion. I used 16 oz. chicken and that was the perfect amount. Read More
