For a delicious change of pace, try this zesty shrimp mixture spooned over fresh salad greens. The blend of herbs provides plenty of zippy flavor. Serve it with thick slices of Italian or garlic bread for an easy supper. -Judith LaBrozzi, Canton, Ohio

"We made this with salad shrimp and spinach. It was okay; nothing special and we won't make it again. The shrimp might be better on pasta or on a mix of pasta and salad greens. If I made it again, I would use the low-sodium broth as it was too salty, even for my salt-lick tendencies."

"This salad is very good warm. My husband and I love it and he is not much for salads. We left out the red pepper flakes and added some pecans and it was delicous. It is not so good cold."
