Summer Shrimp Salad

Enough Already!!!

Enough with the travel talk~ it is time to get back to the real world. I have missed out on the last several Sunday Salad posts (the lack of internet will do that to you!) I am glad to be back in time for this next salad.

The Sunday Salad Sampler this week comes from Jan @ Keep Your Feet in the Street Jan lives in Florida... so it only makes sense that she has a favorite recipe for a summer shrimp salad.

Shrimp Salad
1 pound extra large shrimp (16-20)fresh, wild if you can find them.
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ cup mayo
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, tarragon or parsley.
1 large stalk celery chopped
¼ large red pepper chopped
salt and pepper

Steam the shrimp for about 5 minutes in water with Old Bay. When cool enough to handle, remove shells and chop into about 5 or 6 pieces per shrimp. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss in the chopped shrimp and chill. Serve over a bed of lettuce of your choice.
I think I could wear old bay for perfume. It reminds me of the beach, almost as much as the coconut tanning lotions. This is a quick and easy salad. Perfect for summer time~ when the livin is easy.

Y'all enjoy!

You had me at Old Bay. I can eat that stuff all by itself. Thanks for the idea of using it as perfume, I might just have to try that ;) Fantastic looking salad!
