From a cookbook with step by step photos and instructions (I ripped this out of it before getting rid of it) but I don't see the name on the pages. The cook's tip: Shrimp are available ready cooked and shelled. To cook shrimp, boil them for 2 minutes. Allow them to cool in the cooking liquid, then gently pull off the tail shell and twist off the body.
This is a wonderful main coarse salad to feed 4-6 people. The dressing can be made well in advance and chilled, and will become stronger in flavor with refrigeration time. This is the perfect salad to serve at your next dinner party, not only is is the most delicious salad, it makes a beautiful presentation. If you are serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double or increase all ingredients and also the dressing.
This is the perfect entree salad in my opinion! Once you make it the first time, you will want it again and again! It is very crisp, clean and fresh tasting. Although there are a lot of ingredients, it is very simple and foolproof to prepare. I always buy a precooked whole chicken at the market to use for this salad. Makes it perfect for a summer get-together!
