Hello Binnur,

I thought you might like to know that I made this salad, plus your sweet pea soup and your Antalya-style kidney bean salad as part of a graduation celebration for my boyfriend who is from Adana. We had some of his family members (also from Turkey) and my parents (from California) there and everybody LOVED the food! Thank you for helping me make this occasion wonderful for everyone. The effects of your good work are spreading far and wide. By the way, this shrimp salad is very, very delicious. -Kristen
