Made half a recipe for the two of us and DH is still raving about how good this is. Easy to do and great flavors with the salad and dressing.

We LOVED this salad! It has the perfect ingredients for a summer salad, or as an accompanying salad for BBQ beef, etc. Be sure to try the dressing recipe as is. The vodka burns off but adds a lovely subtle flavor that is hard for guests to identify. Don't substitute for the shallot, and use the beset tasting tomatoes you can find; this may be plum tomatoes in the off-seasons. I served this on a bed of shredded romaine, but butter lettuce would also be great.

This salad made a wonderful supper at the end of a hot day! Made as directed but I poached thawed uncooked large shrimp in white wine and water, with a couple of bay leaves and peppercorns tossed in. Tossed the cooked shrimp with a little lime juice and Old Bay and chilled while prepping the salad. The dressing perfectly complemented the salad and I made as directed, except did not have spicy V8 and subbed regular V8 with a little Tabasco and chili powder added. Did not measure the chopped veges, added to the shrimp to what looked proportional to my eye. Served the salad over romaine to add fiber and greens to the meal. Also did not have English cucumbers, used regular cukes from the grocery store. This was a great combination of flavors and a delightful meal in itself! Will make again.

This was really great and we liked it a lot, but it was REALLY tomato-ee. I think if I were to make this again I would leave the salad as is, but maybe serve with a balsamic dressing, or something sweeter than the dressing that comes with the recipe. Super creative idea though, we really liked it.

This made such a light and refreshing dinner on a very hot day! I love a good Bloody Mary, so this was right up my alley. The dressing was yummy, and everyone appreciated it being served in a shot glass. This is a definite keeper for us. I think we'll have it often this summer. Thanks Cookgirl!

My new favorite salad! I added 1/8 tsp. Tabasco to the dressing and will try 1/4 tsp. next time. I marinated the shrimp in chili-infused olive oil and lime juice. Out-of-this-world good!
