Lovely. I marinated lump crab and shrimp in Italian dressing. Prepared base of mixed salad greens with avacado wedges, tomato wedges, lemon wedges, hard cooked egg wedges, and
sliced cucumber. BUT, the dressing was prepared as written and I could not have enjoyed it more. The dressing absolutely made the salad perfection. Presentation was very nice and was so fresh and flavorful. Thank you for posting. I will use this again and again.
Nice dinner salad for a warm night. I left out the green peppers because they talk back to me. Very yummy, will be making this again for sure, thanks for posting. Made for cookathon for Jeffie while he recoups from back surgery.
This was so good that I had a hard time sharing.I had everything on hand with the exception of the green olives, but it was wonderful anyway....easy to prepare, visually appealing...and gone in about 15 minutes.
