Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Not what I expected b/c I didn't really think about the amounts of ingredients. So I did some adjusting. 1/4 cup of cuke is hardly anything, so I used more than that and ended up subbing zucchini anyway. I did not use the whole amount of cilantro. I served 1/3 of this salad over about a cup per person of raw baby spinach. I made the salad earlier in the day, so the celery and zucchini had a chance to soak up the tasty dressing. In the original recipe, I think the shrimp were dried to add a crunchy topping. But like you, Dee, I don't live in an area where dried shrimp are available, so I used thawed, fully cooked tiny shrimp. Very tasty!
