Mandarin Orange Shrimp Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kmalavey

This wonderful tossed salad is great for a special salad or even a main course. It's one of my most requested recipes. Omit or increase ingredients to suit your taste. Serves 8 as salad, 4-6 as main dish.

This was excellent. I used an arugula/spinach mix instead of romaine, and included quartered artichoke hearts and seasoned croutons. The dressing was great after sitting overnight in the fridge.
