This is a very tasty dish for sure. The only change I made was to use rice vinegar instead of white. A little labor intensive, but so worth it. Salad does need to sit a little while to let the dressing do it's thing, but as the directions say don't add the shrimp til it's time to serve. Thank you for a great recipe.
