Our family loves shrimp. We tasted some slaw that had shrimp in it but it was very bland. I came up with this recipe to kick it up a notch or two. Hope you enjoy.

    In seperate bowl make dressing, stirring until well blended. Pour over salad (a little at a time - you will not need all the dressing). Put just enough dressing to coat the salad, the rest of the dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for later use. Refrigerate the salad until ready to serve.
