I loved that this salad had a light, lemony taste and not bogged down by heavy mayonnaise. I used extra-large shrimp. I think the bigger the shrimp, the better for this salad. This is a great alternative to lettuce-based salads, although this would be great served on a bed of green or lettuce. Thanx for sharing!

These chosen ingredients are fabulous together (color and taste-wise) but this recipe needed much much more salt, pepper and lemon juice to make the flavors come out. I used fresh everything for the ingredients. I am pretty sensitive to too-salty foods so I was surprised that I needed to use more than 2 tablespoons of Krazy lemon salt to give all the ingredients the normal level of flavor. I would definitely make this again but with some adjustments to the lemon, salt and pepper measurements.

*edit June 15, 2007 - I initially gave this recipe a four star rating. Since then I've found myself telling people about it and having cravings for it. That tells me I totally underrated it the first time. This was a very good salad and will definitely be making again. I had a large group to feed so added 6 cups of baby spring greens and used small shrimp instead of large. I did add 1 Tbsp more lemon juice to the dressing but it wasn't quite enough for our tastes. We like a bit more of a bite, so next time I think I'll add 3 Tbsp of lemon juice plus some dijon mustard and a dash or two of hot sauce. Maybe even a wee bit of minced garlic too.
