    MsSally's Note:

    For World Tour 3, The Jivin Jelly Rollers have come up with a fantastic salad recipe. We have paired spicy Jerk seasoned grilled shrimp with sweet pineaple and black beans and topped it off with a cool coconut lime dressing. This salad will knock your socks off and have you dancing to the Carribean beat in no time. This recipe uses for the Jerk Seasoning. Note: you may substitute Light Coconut milk or use this substitution if you can't find coconut milk. 1 cup low-fat milk + 1/4 tsp coconut extract = 1 cup light coconut milk. Also we think this salad would also be great with chicken instead of shrimp.

      Wow! This was amazing!!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe, it will be filed in my "All Time Favorites" file. I figured the Weight Watchers points as 14 pts for 2 servings (7 pts for 4 servings). The only changes I did was, I used three garlic cloves, used lite coconut milk and used a liquid jerk marinade. Thanks MsSally! This one is a winner!

      I scaled this recipe down to one serving for my lunch. I enjoyed the salad, but will omit the sugar when I prepare this again.
