This is a very delicious salad. I made it for hubby's (DH) birthday dinner as an entree and he really enjoyed it. For personal preference I would choose a smaller green leaf salad as it would be more manageable to eat the salad. (We put the mixture in the middle of the leaf and ate it) However this suggestion is only personal preference as didn't take anything away from the taste. Thank you kiwidutch... :)

Very good and easy salad! As I had raw shrimp, I cooked the shrimp with the onion and ginger until done and then made the salad as directed. Delish!
