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!

Nice refreshing salad. I used a green pepper. As with a reviewer, I wasn't sure how much sesame oil to add, so I used 1/2 tsp as well. I served an 8 grain bread along side. Made for Every Day Holiday Tag. :)

This is simply outstanding! I followed this exactly using the measurements, loosely, and this was truly mouth-watering. I grow little spinach's, beet tops, and capsicum's in the backyard, so I used these. As suggested, I kept the little tails on. This is perfect for any season and so darn easy to put together as well!

Delicious salad which we enjoyed very much even with my minor changes. The sizes of my packages were slightly different from the original recipe ingredient list such as my package of salad greens were closer to 4 oz and my can of mandarin oranges was smaller than the one listed. I also used only one green pepper, 4 green onions (instead of the red onions) and added 1 basket of grape tomatoes. I wasn't sure how much sesame oil to use (listed in directions) so I used 1/2 teaspoon and skipped the bread. Very good salad which we will be having often! Thanks for sharing!
