- Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking together all dressing ingredients, except parsley.
- Mix shrimp with remaining salad ingredients.
- Pour dressing over shrimp and sprinkle parsley over salad. Mix well.
- Chill until cold.
- This salad can be served over greens.
- This can also be served over cooked orzo. If serving with orzo, use 1 lb of orzo and triple the dressing ingredients, so that there is enough to coat and flavor the orzo.
This is an absolutely delicious shrimp dish! So light, fresh and flavorful. I don't care for raw onion so left it out. I used small shrimp and left the tails on. I decided to keep the shrimp in the marinade and add the other ingredients and dressing and I'm glad I did - it was terrific. Really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Excellent salad that I made as part of a quick lunch for two. Especially loved the tartness of the dressing and the addition of capers.
