MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2011

OMG, this recipe is a 10! My husband and I loved it so much, we couldn't wait to have another serving the next day for lunch! It makes a beautiful plate and if you leave the shrimp on the side, it keeps very well in the refrigerator. The dressing is what really makes the dish, it is to die for!

Thanks so much for putting this in your cook book, love it!
