What a wonderful dip! I used black olives (just my preference)instead of green. My guests loved this and next time I'll double the recipe. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks ugogirl!

This was very tasty! I could only find 8 oz bags of shrimp and didn't want leftovers so just used it all. Also replaced pecans with walnuts (what I had on hand). Thanks for the recipe ugogirl!
