Simple Shrimp Salad Recipe for Serving the Summer…say that 3 times fast!
Okay, it’s officially, unofficially the kickoff to the summer season so you know what that means…it’s time to lighten up the meals. This simple Shrimp Salad recipe was first featured over on my other blog DeDivahDeals and I wanted to share it over here.
If you are looking for a quick and easy summer salad to serve to your friends and family or perhaps prepare for an after-church Sunday Brunch, then this easy, breezy simple Shrimp Salad should fit the bill.
For this recipe, I purchased a 2 lb package of frozen shrimp which was thawed in the refrigerator overnight. You can either steam the shrimp in a Double Boiler or place them in a pan with 1/4 cup of water to cook until they are pink in color.
Allow the shrimp to cool then remove the shells, and veins and cut into thirds.
Place the shrimp into a bowl, add 1/4 cup of mayonnaise or more if you like a creamier salad, 1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard, 1/4 cup diced Red onion and a few squeezes of juice from a lemon and lime.
Lightly stir to mix all the ingredients together then cover and place in the refrigerator for about an hour to chill.
To serve you can either scoop some of the Shrimp Salad onto individual lettuce leaves or onto toasted Italian bread slices garnished with Dill.
This simple Shrimp Salad is also perfect for a light lunch or as a quick and easy mid-week meal.
