I made this salad after the corrections to the recipe had been made and thought it was absolutely fantastic!!! I marinated the shrimp for a couple of hours and the flavors of the marinade were delicate but flavorful, nothing overpowering, perfect! We also really enjoyed the dressing, had a little kick from the chipotle chilies, and I added just a little extra adobo sauce. For the corn, I brushed the cob with the lime/tequila marinade and grilled it for just a few minutes to increase the grilling flavor. This is a fabulous supper and I see this recipe coming out regularly this summer! Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas - ZWT#5.

we really loved the shrimp marinade.... wonderful and will make this again. the dressing.... not so much. I think maybe too much soy for us.

I just needed a marinade for grilled shrimp - this marinade was awesome! I served the shrimp hot off the grill with mango salsa. I'll have to try the salad and shrimp next:)
