    Can't wait to try. Chicken instead of shrimp...maybe chicken Caesar salad taste?

    I'm confused as to why we should cook already cooked shrimp for an additional 3-4 minutes? To my way of thinking, it would make the shrimp tough and rubbery. It only takes about 4 minutes to saute peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp. I think this would produce a better result.

    Quick, easy and very tasty. Even my 2 and 4 year olds liked it! I also added some chopped asparagus which blended nicely.

    This was really good! I don't even like broccoli and I ate this up! Mine was light on dressing because I ran out, but it was still great!
