MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2011

"I had grapefruit. I had shrimp. Thought I didn't much care for mixture of fruit and seafood but I made this, and WOW, it is the best salad I have ever made! Try it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2011

"I did modify it a little. I used one container of the uns pink grapefruit sections (6.5 oz), 2 oz. chopped avocado, bibb lettuce, 4 oz shrimp (cooked,peeled/deviened) and mixed it with 2 TBl of ff poppy seed dressing. I've had it two days in a row. The combination is delicious plus by modifications came up with 31 carbs/11.25 fat/322 calories. Just delicious and so refreshing!! It's in the 90s here in Kentucky and this has been a great change of pace for my lunch at work."
