This was so good and what a refreshing salad for a hot summer afternoon. I prepared this with bow tie pasta as that is what I had on hand. I also steamed my green beans insted of blanching them, this is just a personal preference. The feta was a wonderful addition. Thanks so much for sharing this...

Yummy, yummy! This is a great cold, summer salad! And one I don't have to worry about sharing! (I'm the only one here who likes shrimp and feta)

I try not to give too many 5 stars but there is nothing that needs improving on this! I actually made it with ww penne(whole wheat)and lime juice, because it's what I had. Really bright tasting. Really good, refreshing. A keeper for sure. I am making this for Easter at my sisters'. Thanks!
