Refreshing and easy to make. I did not mold this salad as I was only making it for dh & myself. I used medium shrimp and added about a tablespoon of anchovy paste to the dressing. Those are the only changes I made. I did not mold the salad but rather tossed it all together in a large salad bowl. Couldn't have been simpler, and it makes a colorful presentation. It is a nice change from your usual caesar salad. We will make this one again.
