Shrimp Garden Salad

September 23, 2009

I LOVE salads. I know that is something most people don’t crave but I truly love them and eat them about twice a day. It’s an obsession. But I like a hearty, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kinda salad. I’m not really a bagged salad with bottled ranch kinda girl. I like a fussy salad. I made this shrimp salad the other night and it definitely satisfied my fussy salad tooth. Plus it looks really pretty and beautiful dishes make me happy. My dad even loved it and was full off of it, so you know it’s a good one. Enjoy!
