The dressing

  1. Shred the cucumber on the large holes of a box grater and then blot dry with paper toweling. Combine all of the ingredients and refrigerate.

The salad

  1. Boil the potatoes with the skins on until fork tender. Drain and when cool enough to handle, slip off the skins with a small paring knife. Cut the potatoes in about 3/4 to 1 inch pieces.
  2. Toss the potatoes, lobster, shrimp, celery and green onions in a large bowl. Reserve a few slices of green onion for garnish if you like.
  3. Fold in all but about 1/2 cup of the dressing. Cover and chill for a few hours. When ready to serve, check for salt and pepper. Add some of the reserved 1/2 cup of dressing if you feel the salad is a little dry.
