Review This Recipe
This salad was so good and so easy to make. It was a huge hit at my seafood night and very filling. You could have it as a main meal and I guarantee you will be satisfied.
I used this recipe for a work pot luck and got nothing but positive feedback. I have since been asked 3 times for the recipe. I have found if you use a litte minced garlic it flavors it right up!
This was a great lunch! I love salads, but usually find them boring. The tortellini and the shrimp were a great mix! I also added some tomato and artichoke hearts. I will definately make this again and again!
Great basis for improvisation
The recipe as it stands is a little bland, but it opens itself up to lots of tailoring to your own taste: Add green onions; use thinly sliced red onion; use salad shrimp instead; use other varities of greens; use your imagination!
I ENJOYED THIS VERY MUCH, ALTHOUGH I SUBSTITUTED THE CEASER DRESSING FOR GREEK OIL AND VINEGAR DRESSING. IT TASTED GREAT, AND MY HUSBAND LOVED THE SHRIMP IDEA
THE perfect lunch salad
WONDERFUL! A perfect light lunch with protein. The dressing is just the right touch and adds the perfect amount of spice. Great for luncheons and a quick meal.
