Shrimp/Prawn Salad for Summer

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Leggy Peggy

Prawns that were cooked, shelled and deveined were on sale today, so I bought them and made up this recipe because I couldn't find anything on the net. Anyway, it got five-plus stars from everyone at the table, so I thought I'd post it before I forgot it. It was so easy and I'm sure you can 'juggle' the portions and the ingredients. By the way, Lebanese cucumbers are the long, thin ones (don't know what they are called in the USA—would appreciate it if you can tell me). Good luck and enjoy.

Oh Peggy, you have outdone yourself on this masterpiece!!! It was so pretty I didn't want to put the dressing on it!!!! I confess that I used lemon pepper in place of the black pepper and subbed out Old Bay Seasoning for the salt. This is one stellar recipe! Absolutely company worthy and restaurant quality to say the least!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the first six ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Put the last seven ingredients (the dressing) in a separate bowl and mix well.
  3. Combine both sets of ingredients and mix well.
  4. Spoon over the mixed greens. Tonight I used a combination of shredded iceberg lettuce and chopped rocket.
