    ciao's Note:

    This is a recipe I got from a magazine. It is, without a doubt, the best salad I've ever had! Maybe some of you will think so, too! It looks like alot of ingredients, but it's so quick and easy to throw together! My husband requests this ALL THE TIME! The dressing is really a nice mix, too.

      This was a really interesting, easy to make salad and just perfect for a hot summer day with enough left over for lunch. I used reduced sodium taco seasoning mix and beans to try to lower the sodium in the salad and used green bell peppers instead of red. Although next time I may add more vegetables (maybe zucchini or other summer squash) this was a great out-of-the-ordinary type of salad.

      She's right! It's a lot easier that it looks! I used red wine vinegar in the dressing and it was wonderful. We LOVED the kicky taste of the shrimp! I plan on making this one a lot this summer! Thanks Leeannr!! :-)

      Leeannr..made this for dinner tonight for DH and myself, what a big hit, it was fantastic.... DH says he wants this at least once a week...the shrimp had such a wonderful flavor, and it was not that hard to put together, the only thing I changed was, I did not have any black beans, so I used chick peas instead, and I added just a little fresh minced garlic to the dressing...I would highly recommend this salad, it is worth making, I am looking forward to making this again very soon....delicious! thanks so much for posting Leeannr...KC :-)
