Shrimp and Mix green Salad with Anchovy Dressing.

Shrimp and Mix green Salad with Anchovy Dressing or I called Carolyn's Salad. Here is my mother-in-law recipe that she taught my husband, David how to make it and he is the person who taught me this dish. It's only one dish that isn't Thai food that I can cook here. This is very healthy salad and the main ingredients is anchovy. We made for many friends who came to our house and they loved to eat this salad. They said they dislike anchovy but they can't know there was anchovy inside the dressing. This is for my friend who lives n Denver, PA. He loves this recipe and I would love to make this blog for him to cook from his kitchen. He's the other friend who flew 10,000 miles to be at our wedding in my village at Thailand.
