      Wonderful salad! When I tasted the prawns straight off the grill I wasn't thrilled, thought they were too tart, but when tossed with the salad found the sweetness of the oranges were a perfect compliment to the tartness. I did not use the extra marinade in the dressing, frankly just forgot but didn't need it, the vinegar and oil were just perfect. Thanks for sharing, Pat! A keeper for sure!

      I noticed in the reviews that the amount of sesame oil is in question. It isn't listed in the ingredient list but is added in step 5 of the directions without a measurement. Most reviewers are going with 1/2 tsp as it is a strong flavored oil.

      Boy I loved this salad! Wonderful flavor and beautiful presentation. I don't care for onion so left that out, and I used canned mandarin oranges. The dressing on this is outstanding, very light and fresh and a perfect complement to the shrimp. Served with some crunchy breadsticks and loved this - thanks for sharing this keeper!
