Directions

  1. Cook the asparagus in boiling salted water until tender. Remove and cool under cold water. Reserve six stalks and cut remaining asparagus into 1 inch pieces.
  2. Cook and clean shrimp. Again reserve the best six and dice the remainder. In a bowl, combine shrimp and asparagus, mix gently with mayonnaise and lemon juice.
  3. In a separate bowl, marinate the artichoke hearts in 1 cup French dressing.
  4. Place shrimp and asparagus in an attractive shallow bowl. Garnish with sieved egg and arrange reserved asparagus on top to resemble the spokes of a wheel.
  5. Drain the artichoke bottoms and garnish each with a dollop of mayonnaise, 1 whole shrimp and 1 parsley sprig. Arrange them around the salad.

This looks better than it tastes, but it was pretty good. Next time I would use a little less dressing, and make sure you get artichoke bottoms, not hearts.

I little on the bland side but overall good. Very pretty. I followed the previous reviewers advice and cut back on the dressing and it worked out well. It's a great way to use up leftover shrimp from a party or recipe.

This was soooo good. I made it to use as sides for my lunches last week, but instead I ate it all at one time. Make sure you let it sit in the fridge for a bit before you eat it though - tastes so much better!

We really liked this! I thought it was going to be bland, but it ended up being a nice, light flavor that was very much enjoyed. Was even great the next day! The directions made for a beautiful presentation. I'll be making this again! Thank you.
