Shrimp Salad

Today I am lucky enough to feature a guest post
written by Jill of Simple Daily Recipes:

Simple and straight forward is the direction of this Shrimp Salad recipe.  But don't be fooled that it may be too simple in taste.  The Homemade French Dressing recipe that accompanies the recipe is full of flavor and will make extra for your next green salad.  Enjoy this shrimp salad alone or on a bed of baby spinach leaves, either way it's delicious.


Shrimp Salad

First the French dressing recipe
  • 1/3 cup vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 cup salad oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • a few grains Cayenne
Combine all the ingredients; shake or beat until thoroughly combined.  Shake again each time before using. Makes 1-1/3 cups.

Shrimp Salad
  • 3 cups cooked shrimp
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced celery
  • 3 tablespoons French dressing (see below)
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup fresh mayonnaise
  • lemon juice to taste
If shrimps are small, leave them whole; if large, cut them up.  Combine shrimp with celery and French dressing.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Chill 30 minutes to cool down fresh cooked shrimp and allow flavors to blend.

Drain.  Mix with mayonnaise and lemon juice.  Serve individually in lettuce cups or on a bed of fresh baby spinach leaves. Garnish with spinach cut into ribbons.  Makes 6 to 8 servings
