Shrimp and Cabbage Salad

"This is yet another version of Ramen Noodle Slaw, but with a little different twist -- lime. Also,no nuts, as my family isn't wild about them in a main dish. The bottled dressings listed are Good Seasons and Kraft brands, because that's available here. This makes a great lunch or light supper when it's too hot to eat (but when is that???). It's easy to put together: use a LARGE Tupperware bowl with a lid, and you don't even need to stir, just turn it over a few times, and chill! (Cooking time is chilling time)"

<p>My children are now both in college, and am currently caring for my Mom who is convalescing from a stroke. Volunteering has been my main form of entertainment outside the home, but getting out and about is hard to manage right now. Recipezaar forums help out, make me feel I'm participating in the real world. Have had many different types of jobs, but would like to go back to school to get an education degree as soon as Mom is better able to care for herself. Imagine! a new teacher over 55! Love baking, and still volunteer to run the Band Booster Bake Sale even though both my kids have graduated out -- the other volunteers and the customers are just wonderful. Besides, who doesn't mind getting repeat requests for one's specialties? <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
