  1. Had this salad last night. The combination of lemon with olive oil gave it a very nice summer taste. Definitely have again

  2. Hey thanks for this suggestion, I was actually looking for something to cook, something new to be specific. Olive and lemon juice combo seems tasty.

    To be honest I haven’t ever before had a try of shrimp for some reason it doesn’t look appetising but in this dish is looks passable. I’m kind of excited to try this!

  3. Thank you, Cynthia, for sharing this yummy and fresh-looking recipe! I typically don’t cook with tomatoes but this recipe looks so flavorful that I think I would even like it! Chilled shrimp are so lovely in the summer, so I think I will be making this at my next family event over the weekend. What dressing options do you recommend, and how would that impact the calories?

    1. The lemon juice and olive oil combo I include in this recipe are all the dressing you need in my opinion.  It adds just over 22 calories per serving so if you were to replace it with something else, you could just replace those calories with whatever you decide to use.  Let me know if you decide to use another dressing and how you liked it!
