Irresistible This recipe was very easy to make and everything tasted perfectly. I don't like beans or celery but mixed with fresh herbs lemon juice and olive oil it was delicious. And you can never go wrong with shrimp. Pros: fresh herbs makes this very unique Cons: can't stop eating
I really enjoyed this salad and thought the herb proportions were right on. I happened to have larger shrimp on hand and no skewers so I boiled fewer shrimp than what the recipe called for instead of grilling and added them to the bean mixture in the end. Refreshing summer salad that I will definitely make again!
I was surprised at how tasty this was. I followed the recipe exactly. The celery provides a nice crunch against the creamy beans and the shrimp (which I grilled in their shells) were delicious with it. We had all the fresh herbs in our garden and I think some of the oregano was actually marjoram (they are right next to each other)--but whatever they were they were great and I think any combination of herbs would work. A summer dish!
I made all of the recipes in the "Farm fresh picnic" section of the magazine for a weekend at a cabin. I made the white bean salad ahead of time. We had so much food that we didn't grill the shrimp to go with the salad. But the salad was so fresh and intoxicating with the herbs that we didn't miss the shrimp. Excellent!
I made this exactly as written and got raves from my guests. The beans were great with letuce later. Used all fresh herbs from my garden always a good thing. Also made the Mozarella and tomato stacks fro this article - they said it was like a restaurant! linndog
