What is better then shrimp, zucchini, celery, red pepper and shallots? Well nothing because this is one wonderful recipe! Adult-child-it doesn't matter, this was eaten faster then a pig in mud getting away from someone trying to grab him. An exceptional shrimp salad, very smooth taste, and all the tastes were so balanced. I used some sprigs of fresh thyme, and served on a bed of baby greens. I loved the carrots and zucchini in particular and don't think anything should be changed. I also added a bit of "Old Bay" Seasoning (1/4 tsp.) to the mayonnaise, dijon, and lemon dressing. Perfect! Made for *Photo Swap* January 2010
