      I really enjoyed this salad, although I had to make a few changes because I had trouble finding some ingredients. I used basil instead of mint, and just served the dressing and shrimp on a bed of greens instead of the shredded lettuce/cabbage. These substitutions worked well for me, and all the awesome flavors from the dressing and shrimp brought everything together. I liked how every bite seemed to have a different flavor- very nice.
