**Helpful tips and common mistakes
As far as salads go, this is really easy to prepare especially because there is minimal cooking involved. For directions on how to poach shrimp, click the link above. You can also choose to only have crab.
The dressing is similar to 1000 island dressing.
This salad is light, fresh, and just darn delicious. You need that creamy dressing to bring everything together so the dressing is perfect. I tried it with balsamic vinegar and it really wasn’t the same. I imagine the addition of avocado or even cheese would be great to this salad, giving that creaminess the salad lacks.
I served this salad along with homemade cheddar cheese yorkshire pudding which came out surprisingly well. Yum yum! Now this is my kind of lunch!
