simple, light and yummy. My Mom "invented" this and once you get the hang of it its delicious and simple to make. We make it during the summer and for holidays. you can serve this for 2 as a salad or put it out as an appetizer. You have to adjust the garlic and dill to your taste. I usually add more garlic.

Made this for the 2 of us & although I did follow the recipe, I diced the shrimp so I could use the salad as a spread on thick slices of toasted whole grain bread! I used just enough dill to know it was there, & was very generous with the garlic, which we love! Very, very satisfying! Will definitely be keeping this recipe around! Thanks for sharing it!
