This salad sounded and looked good on the website but it was even better in real life. The flavor of the dressing was perfect with the fresh vegetables and it was a refreshing meal on a hot summer evening. I grilled the shrimp the day before and then sauteed it in sesame oil and minced ginger. I also used Sriracha in the dressing instead of red pepper flakes. Read More
