Made your recipe pretty much as given, though I did start with just 3 tablespoons of lemon juice & then added just a teaspoon more! Also started with the 1/3 cup of mayo & found that to be just right for us! Really liked the crunch of the water chestnuts! Finally, since I was serving this as one of several salads, I sprinkled the chopped tomato over the entire bowl & it was ready for the table! This was a great tasting salad, & one I'll be happy to add to my summer salads list! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
This is lovely. I think that I would have preferred a finer grate of the cabbage as it comes in as the strongest flavor. I skipped the tomato only because the salad had to be in the fridge for quite awhile and I didn't want it to bleed juice into the mix. Love the lemon juice here. Thanks Gert for another reason to be thankful for summer.
I made this last night and let it sit in the fridge until today's lunch. Then, I wrapped in it a whole wheat tortilla, which went really nicely with it. I left out the carrots and the water chestnuts, because I don't really care for either. Next time, I may try mustard instead of the lemon juice and will add some sea salt as well. Overall, a terrific recipe! And, my 6 year old chose this recipe as his first adventure tasting shrimp...it won him over. :)
DH just loved this, I really liked it. We had this for "snack night". I cut it down to 1 1/2 servings. I served it on crackers. I did take short cut and used shrimp meat cut up and also prepackaged shredded cabbage mix. DH thought it needed more salt, I thought that it had too much lemon juice. Overall a great appetizer and it will be served again. Thanks gertc96 for posting.
