I love a good salad, especially one with lots of stuff in it. This one fits the bill nicely! The cucumbers, the red onion and bacon and shrimp are awesome salad ingredients. Then, you bite into a strawberry and suddenly there is a sweetness that blends well with the other ingredients. And all of these great compnents are pulled together by the simple, light and delicious dressing. A perfect salad for a warm spring or summer night, or a cold winter night while dreaming of warmer weather! Everyone here at POTG loved this salad and we think you will too!
