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.
