Shrimp Salad

Shrimp Salad created by Nif_H

This is really good stuffed in a fresh tomato, in an avocado, or served with a lettuce wedge. Great for these hot summer days. The instructions are for fresh shrimp; if using frozen, follow the cooking directions on the bag...they may take longer to cook (just a little longer...do not overcook the shrimp).

    I made this using Old Bay as the crab boil and red pepper instead of the green and red. This is creamy, flavourful, and was terrific over fresh spinach. I wouldn't miss the egg if it wasn't in there in case you are in a hurry and want to make this. And thanks to gailanng, I Slap Chopped it all! Made for 1,2,3 Tag. Thanks! :)

    Wonderful! I used cooked shrimp and quartered the recipe. I served it as an appetizer/snack on top of small toasts for 4 adults. Made for 'went to the market'.
