Really enjoyed the shrimp salad on a bed of greens. The only thing I would change would be to use less was a bit strong for us. Nice recipe which I will be making again. Thanks, Parsley. (:

I love shrimp, they are reasonably priced here compared to the U.S. & we always have a bag of frozen Icelandic baby shrimp in our freezer. I made a couple of minor chgs - I used lime juice (love its flavor) & McCormick Lemon Pepper Seasoning Salt. I had it for lunch today w/sliced tomato & avocado - a very tasty combo of flavors & a very worthy 4*. Pls see my rating system & thx for posting this.
