"I felt this was a bit bland and nothing too exciting. I have never made a shrimp salad before--only had store bought kinds. I tried tweaking the mayo-dijon ratio to make it better, but still just an okay dish. I wouldn't make it again."

"I made this delicious appetizer this afternoon and declare it a five star winner. Not only delicious but it is super simple to prepare. The lettuce leaf makes a nice presentation but I baked French bread in a scalloped bread tube yesterday and sliced it for the shrimp salad. It made a very pretty appetizer.
