Recipe by Oolala

From a food magazine. I don't know which one since it was before I started with Zaar and didn't keep track. The cool cucumber vinaigrette balances the sweetness and mild heat of the curried shrimp. The recipe has this cook's note: viniagrette and shrimp can be prepared 1 day ahead of serving and chilled separately, covered.
