ZWT 6. I got this from Spoonfuls of Germany by Nadia Hassani. The use of brandy in this recipe is intriguing.

I am always on the lookout for quick recipes for lunch. This salad is a nice addition to my collection. The only change made was to add chopped green onion. I loved the shrimp, radish, mushroom combination, and thought the small amount of brandy did jazz up the dressing without overpowering things. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6.

I never would have thought to add brandy to salad dressing but... yum! This was so easy to throw together, especially because I used precooked shrimp. I really enjoyed this for lunch today - just packed the shrimp mixture and the greens separately. I also made enough just for 1 but used whole egg. Made for ZWT6 for my teammate. Thanks Pesto lover. :)
