Reviews for Shrimp & Nectarine Salad
"Excellent and easy. When I make it next time, I will add a little of the dressing to the cooked shrimp. The dressing is delicious and I was thankful to be able to use some of the tarragon from my herb garden. Thank you for this recipe."
"Fixed this for majong ladies and everyone loved it."
"I've already made this a second time! I love it! I did make a couple of adjustments. I grilled the nectarines along with the corn. I added some garlic powder, ground pepper, mustard powder, and 1/4 tsp. of salt to the dressing. I also squeezed a fresh lemon over the shrimp as a lemon-pepper substitute. Oh! I also added crumbled feta cheese as a topping! Delicious!"
"A very good salad that's great for a hot summer's day, but needed a little tweaking to make it just perfect! I marinated the shrimp in olive oil, lime juice and lemon pepper. I also opted to grill the shrimp and the corn to add a little more flavor. I also added chopped avocado, and it was yummy!"
"This salad was a big hit with the fam. Loved the dressing. The only changes I made were to throw in chopped avocado (I had one the was about to go south) and double the amount of dressing. I added a whole bag of Costco shrimp. Absolutely fabulous!"
"Good. Very light. Left out the tarragon. I thought it could have used a bit more salt once the whole salad was assembled. Also, I would use much more shrimp, possibly double, to feed four adults a meal. My three kids had four shrimp between them (they don't like shrimp anyway) and my husband and I had barely enough. Will make again though!"
"Excellent to the 10th degree! Wow! What a great summer salad! I grilled the shrimp and corn and added a chopped, seeded cucumber. The tangy nectarine paired well with the other veggies. The tarragon and orange juice were a great blend and I was impressed that it emulsified without the oil! I doubled the dressing as suggested on FB. We had it with a multi-grain French bread. Half is eaten; looking forward to the leftovers!!! Thank you Mary Ann."
"EXCELLENT!! I didn't use tarragon or onion but I don't think that changed the taste too much."
