    As a dinner main course salad for adults, I add a few more shrimp to each plate and more orange segments. Large shrimp are just fine. I saute them until pink in a touch of olive oil and a squirt of lemon juice and top my salads with them while still hot. I use spring greens, which usually already contain some baby spinach in it.

    I've made this salad about four times. I really like it and my husband always raves about it. You must toast the pecans, and I highly recommend sticking with the pecans. They are an element that really makes this salad shine. The fat free dressing is great with it. Highly recommended.

    Excellent. I sautéed a pound of decent sized raw shrimp (25-30/lb)in one T EVO and one T butter and garlic and crushed red pepper to taste for about 3 or 4 minutes then sliced each in half and topped the salad with the shrimp pieces. Then the honey mustard dressing. Left off the pecans - forgot them - was still delicious. Will definitely make again, this time with the pecans. The flavors of the orange, the slightly sweet/tart tast of the dressing and the shrimp all melded togethr beautifully. Thanks for the recipe.
