    I was surprised how good this was. Even my picky 8 year old and 6 year old ate it. Great skinny salad. I left out the shallots because I thought it was too much with red onion for the kids, and just had about 2 tbsp of red onion. My 6 year old said it was D-elicious!

    Delicious and fast! My husband, who thinks of salad as a "side dish", raved about how good the shrimp was. I used a mix of baby spinach and arugula. The bacon gave this salad a fabulous smoky undertone. I used the shallot in the dressing and I thought it gave a lot of great taste to the dressing. The ease of this recipe belies how satisfying the salad is overall.

    Although I like the addition of fennel to this recipe, I found it to be fairly ordinary. Nothing really wowed me - the family felt the same way. It was nice though as a fresh, light weeknight dinner.
