Summer is the perfect time for a light and refreshing salad. When temperatures start to climb, many tend to spend less time in the kitchen and opt for making lighter fare. This Creamy Shrimp Salad is full of bright summer flavors. It combines cool summer cucumbers, celery, Old Bay seasoning, and cooked shrimp for a cold salad that you’ll want to make over and over again. Plus, it’s a quick and easy recipe guaranteed to not heat up the kitchen.
Mother’s Day is coming up. How will you celebrate the mothers in your life?
We always celebrate with a special brunch or breakfast. The kids all help out and the menu is usually light and easy. This salad will be one of the items on this year’s menu. It’s easy enough for the kids and it can be made ahead of time. From start to finish, this shrimp salad can be made in less than 10 minutes. Serve it by itself, on top of mixing greens or lettuce, in a sliced croissant or crusty roll for a sandwich (chop the shrimp is using for a salad), or accompanied with toast points. It’s versatile and delicious. Win! Win!
