Shrimp Salad Recipe

Shrimp salads are easy to make. I always keep cooked shrimp in the freezer for a last minute salad. . This salad requires no cooking and is delicious enough to serve to your favorite friends and family. Get out all the veggies and make this very healthful salad. You can improvise with different seasonings and spices. Shrimp are low in fat and calories so work well for most diets. Hard to find someone who doesn't absolutely love shrimp. I know everyone in my family love them anyway they are prepared.

The Finale for the Shrimp Salad Recipe

Now that you have finished this easy shrimp salad recipe, it is time to serve it to all those anxiously waiting. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the top of the salad to add a little color. Crusty hot sour dough bread is a nice addition or pita bread with olive oil. Any left over salad can keep in the refrigerator for just one day. If there is any left of this shrimp dish though probably not.
