cucumber, cleaned and chopped
1 (4.5 ounce) can

This is a wonderful base recipe to use and then tweak it to suit your tastes. I use the ingredients listed, (though I use iceberg lettuce, not romaine), and I add half a bag of shredded salad carrots. I also use the shrimp you buy at the fish counter for salad OR for a special treat I buy the small or medium shrimp that has the tails on and I just remove the tails and toss the shrimp in with the other ingredients. I then add salt and pepper and a small amount of mayonaise. (has to be mayo, the real thing, and not too much, you want to coat it lightly).
Go easy on the onions, and chop the radishes nice and thin. YUM-O!
This was just OK for me.. nothing fancy..
Loved this combination of ingredients that were handily already in my fridge, and I especially liked the bite from the radishes. I don't care for canned shrimp, so used fresh-frozen instead. I tossed this with "Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing," also from this site. Pretty, colorful and flavorful.
Very simple garden salad topped with a seafood favorite - shrimp! This was perfect for a quick and easy lunch and a great way for me to use up the last of the leftover grilled shrimp. ("Ron's Grilled Shrimp" from this site) I cut back on the serving size using a bagged salad mix and subbed red pepper for the radish. I left out the celery and added some sliced avocado in it's place. This was fabulous drizzled with a creamy buttermilk ranch dressing - YUM!
Yum! Great salad idea with ingredients I always seem to have around. I did use red bell pepper instead of celery though, and some 26/30 shrimp we grilled last night. Tossed with a light buttermilk ranch dressing. Will add this to my regular rotation!
I also had only iceberg lettuce.I did not include radishes and celery. Substituted powdered onion spice instead of green onions and did add a bit of mayo. I used small frozen shrimp. I didn't end up measuring ingredients. It was good, nice change from regular salad or spinach salad.
Excellent. The shrimp was a great addition to the salad. Why didn't I think of that? Easy to prepare, and servable with every dish since you can use just about any dressing or vinaigrette. I also added nuts for a crunchy texture, and would like to try croutons another time. Very healthy (depending on the dressing), so you can have an extra helping and not feel guilty about it.
I enjoyed the combination of flavors - I didn't have celery so I didn't add it and I used fresh-frozen shrimp that I sauteed quickly with some yummy smoked paprika. I was going to just do a veggie salad but remembered saving this recipe--I LOVE what the shrimp added to this salad. DEEElish!
