Reviews for Lemon-Linguine Shrimp Salad
"I really enjoyed this dish! It does have a very strong lemon flavor, but it balanced well with the delicious shrimp. I will definitely make this again!"
"This salad was okay, but not great. I usually love lemon flavor, but as the previous writer said it was just too much. I probably will not make again."
"This recipe was ok, I'll make it again but with a few changes. It was WAY too lemony for our taste, so I'll definitely reduce the amount of lemon juice. I may also add some peas or some other kind of vegetable to it. It was also way too spicey for my taste, but I'm a weakling. Hubby said that the amount was just right for him. Other than these few things it was pretty good! It was good warm or cold and I got some fresh shrimp."
