So good that I am nearly at a loss for words ... but not quite. Crabmeat is curiously not to be found here & we hoard the meager supply we get on trips, so I used my ever reliable Icelandic baby shrimp, halved the recipe for 2 of us & made exactly as written. The dressing is great & the recipe so easy-to-fix + ingredient friendly. Thx for posting this instant favorite for us. We loved it!

This dish is outstanding Lazyme. My dh & I loved it. I used the shrimp option, I didn't add the tomatoes as I didn't have any. It was excellant without. I can see were they would just add to this dish. The dressing is wonderful, sweet and tangy, it compliments the salad and shrimp perfectly without overpowering them....Kudos on a recipe that I will make again & again. Thanks so much for sharing.
