Reviews for Special Scallops Salads
"OUTSTANDING...EVEN MY HARD TO PLEASE HUSBAND LICKED THE PLATE."
"I really enjoyed this. My husband didn't like it as much as I did, but thought the salad went really well with the scallops."
"This recipe was absolutely delicious. The flavors blended beautifully. Sea scallops were just too expensive, so I used precooked shrimp, which I had in the freezer. I prepared the ingredients for the sauce early in the day and cooked it per the recipe, adding the shrimp just long enough to heat through, and served it as a complete meal with french bread on a 100+ degree afternoon."
"This recipe was so delicious! I love that you could serve it as an appetizer or increase the recipe and serve it as a meal."
