Reviews for Crispy Shrimp Caesar Salad
"Delicious! The salad has just the right balance between tender and crispy. I did add extra salad ingredients...cucumber, red onion, and radish in order to make it a "dinner" salad. I cut down on the prep by using popcorn shrimp, too. Thanks, Marla for the inspiration. This salad is definitely a keeper!"
