Shrimp and Corn Salad

"From RealSimple. I make this in huge batches and eat on it for days! It's so good on top of a little arugula with goat cheese. I sometimes use chicken and pine nuts instead of shrimp and pumpkin seeds--sort of sub out according to what I have around."

    An excellent summer salad. I served this over iceberg lettuce and it was perfect on a hot day. I actually used a can of corn and a can of diced tomatoes both well drained (for a half recipe), and it worked fine. I love the light, fruity dressing with these ingredients. Thank you so much for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2009.

    Very yummy. I love the light dressing, although I think I'd like just a touch of mayo added in. I had to use peanuts instead of pumpkin seeds but the flavor was very good. Thanks for the great recipe. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2008

    We really enjoyed this simple-to-make salad even though I left out the jicama and the scallions (out of). I also added about 1/2 bag of baby spinach. Yummy! A great low cal/low fat summer salad! Thanks for sharing this keeper!

I got married to my high school sweetheart in August 06 at the ripe old age of 21, and my husband Luke and I just moved to Birmingham, AL from Auburn. He's in his second year of dental school at UAB. I have a BFA in Graphic Design, and I'm a designer at Time Inc and doing freelance design work on the side. I'm planning to go to grad school for a Master's of Fine Arts in Book Arts some time or another. I had deferred because I think the timing will be better once Luke gets out of school and perhaps I might not need to commute the hour over there. Getting married and getting HALF of a refrigerator instead of sharing one with seven other girls really ignited a cooking fire in me! Lately I've been trying to cut out the sugar, which is hard, because Luke likes sugary pancakes and cereal, and because I like baking things. I need to quit baking! Trying to lose the newlywed nine so I can fit into my winter clothes.
