What is better then shrimp, zucchini, celery, red pepper and shallots? Well nothing because this is one wonderful recipe! Adult-child-it doesn't matter, this was eaten faster then a pig in mud getting away from someone trying to grab him. An exceptional shrimp salad, very smooth taste, and all the tastes were so balanced. I used some sprigs of fresh thyme, and served on a bed of baby greens. I loved the carrots and zucchini in particular and don't think anything should be changed. I also added a bit of "Old Bay" Seasoning (1/4 tsp.) to the mayonnaise, dijon, and lemon dressing. Perfect! Made for *Photo Swap* January 2010
Thanks Caroline for a winner! I made half of the recipe and it was more then enough for 3 of us at a picnic. I also left out the zucchini and carrots, added a half a green pepper with the red, and used chopped dill pickles rather then the relish. Next time I plan to try some different herbs, maybe the dill or tarragon. :-)
Great salad CC! I omitted the shallot and used green onions, also omitted the carrots and did some amount adjustments, we loved this, thanks for posting hon!...Kitten:)
