    Brenda.'s Note:

    My Mom Janice, made this easy shrimp spread every Christmas for as long as I can remember. While delicious as soon as it's made, I like to make it the night before to let the flavors blend. I always double this recipe because my Sister likes to take home any leftovers.

      This was very easy to put together and tasted good too. I cut the recipe in half because it was just me and had it on some toast and it was great that way. I used cooked and cold shrimp from the fridge rather than a can and I went for fat free cream cheese and it all worked well. We also can't get French or Catalina dressing in the UK. French dressing here is more like American's think of Italian dressing. So, I subbed some ketchup mixed with a bit of sweet chili sauce and it was nearly the same. Made for ZWT4.

      Very nice combo of flavors in this spread for us since we want things like this to have an extra measure of heat. I used Icelandic baby shrimp (not canned) & added a bit of finely diced celery (because I am trying to use it up any way I can). I made 1 chg out of necessity that worked to get us the extra heat factor. The dressings you suggested are not available here & I did not want to make a copycat for just 2 tbsp, so I used Heinz Chili Sauce. It was really good, Brenda. I can tell you not much of it survived for the ** Chill overnight ** part of the prep! :-) Pls see my rating system - a very worthy 4* to be sure. Thx for sharing this w/us.

      My son and I loved this dip! I did make one change and that was to add in a bit of hot sauce just cause we like spicy foods. I used French dressing and served it with club crackers. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
