    AuntWoofieWoof's Note:

    I came up with this recipe a few days ago when I wanted to make a shrimp salad that did not have pasta or salad greens in it. I added things as I went along. The olives add a unique taste to the salad. The recipe calls for pickle juice even though it does not contain any pickles. If you don't have pickle juice, just add more olive juice. This salad tastes better if it is refrigerated for several hours or overnight. Since both olive and pickle juices have a lot of salt in them, there is no salt listed in the ingredients list. This can be served as a meal or as an appetizer at a party. Cook time is refrigeration time and is the minimal time it should be refrigerated for best flavor.

      What a great, great, great, recipe for a hot, hot, hot summer day! I followed this exactly, only cutting down on the mayo by 2 tablespoons less, personal preference. This is just so lovely! Thanks for posting!

      Definitely guest-worthy. Would make a wonderful cold picnic dish! Thanks for posting this terrific recipe! Changes I made--used chopped red bell pepper and slice the hard boiled egg on the side, since I marinated the salad for 24 hours. Made for CameraLess Chef 07.
