WONDERFUL FLAVOR!! In June of each summer we have our annual Blanchard Reunion with relatives coming from the west coast to the east coast. Aunt Betty always brings a big dish of shrimp salad which everyone enjoys. There is never a shrimp left!!! This is her recipe.
- 2 1⁄2 lbs fresh shrimp (shelled and deveined)
- 2 large potatoes, cut in cubes
- 4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
- 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise (Kraft's)
- 1⁄2 cup celery, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup sweet salad pickle, drained
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- Place shrimp in boiling water and cook for only 3 minutes. Drain immediately and let cool. Then cut shrimp in thirds.
- Simmer potatoes in boiling salted water until done but still firm.
- In a large bowl mix remaining ingredients. Gently combine shrimp and potatoes with pickle mixture.
