For something cool on a hot day, we mix shrimp and crabmeat with crunchy veggies straight from the garden. Look for adobo seasoning in your grocery’s international section. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

"Made this for a potluck and it was a huge hit. I also added a little chili powder. Perfect! So refreshing and different!"

"We enjoyed this recipe as a “main dish” rather than an appetizer on a very uncomfortably muggy evening. It was refreshingly satisfying and absolutely delicious. The colorful mixture of ingredients made an eye appealing dish. We loved the crunch vegetables combined with the sweet-tender taste of the seafood. The dressing with lime juice, adobo seasoning, and olive oil was good; I added a touch of hot chili powder to give it a little pop of heat. We are not cilantro lovers so I substituted parsley. I highly recommend this delicious recipe! Thank you, Teri Rasey!!"
