Far from the mayo-laden dish of the ’80s, this far lighter shrimp salad is still super flavorful. The salad is brightened it with red onion, jalapeno, fresh cilantro and a light lime/olive oil dressing.
Spoon your salad into a romaine or butter lettuce leaf, onto cucumber slices, fill up a cooked puff pastry shell or simply enjoy as is.
It’s a light entrée to add to your go-to recipe collection. And it might become be one of your favorite shrimp recipes, too.
