Additional Information

If you love Italian flavors, go ahead and toss a tablespoon or two of capers into this hearty yet light salad. Serve it beside fresh fruit drizzled with lime and honey for a spectacular meal.

One pound cut-up cooked chicken or turkey works well in place of the shrimp. Or make it meatless by using a 15-ounce can of white beans, rinsed and drained, instead of the shrimp.
