This is a great recipe that looks fancy and is very easy and quick.
Nice, basic shrimp salad. What was different about this for me was simply gettting away from the ubiquitous dill and adding onion and lemon juice instead, something I never do. I've learned a little lemon juice is nice but I can do without the onion, and I didn't use nearly as much as called for! A little bit'll do ya!
This was a great recipe, but I did change it just a little:)!!! I turned it into a macaroni type salad by cooking macaroni noodles and adding them to the mixture. Other than that, I didn't change anything else and I thought that they were a good, quick, and simple lunch:)!!!
Great Recipe. I added a teaspoon of Old Bay to liven the taste and diced some avocado at the suggestion of another reviewer. Didn't use quite the amount of mayo called for. Great Recipe!!!!!!
Way too much mayo, but that's easily remedied. I started off using only 1/4 cup and adding a Tbsp at a time. Just enough mayo to hold the ingredients is what I like. This was delicious if you cook the shrimp using the Old Bay recipe found on this sight. I stuff green peppers with this for my friends who don't like raw tomatoes and then we're all happy!
I prepared this as an appetizer for last night's dinner and was very pleased with the end result. I added chopped avocado just before serving and it complimented the shrimp perfectly. Only change I'd make is use less mayo next time and more lemon. Flavours improved overnight although it didn't do much for the avocado!
I made a mistake when writing up this recipe. Use the bunch of celery. At least 6 stalks! Chop fine.
I used green onions, half spicy and half plain mayo to eaual about a 1/2 cup, more lemon juice and added 3/4 cup pasta shells and I ate the hole thing! It was great!
