And since nobody feels like getting too close to the stove on a steamy day; how about one more cool and delicious summer supper recipe? 馃檪


Shrimp Salad with Fruit

路 1 cup thinly sliced celery
路 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
路 2 tablespoons milk
路 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
路 2 teaspoons grated onion
路 1 teaspoon salt
路 salad greens
路 paprika

Thaw shrimp if frozen. Cut large shrimp in half. Place the shrimp, pears, apples and celery in a large bowl. Combine mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, onion and salt; mix well.
Pour over shrimp mixture and toss lightly. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
Serve on salad greens. Sprinkle with paprika. 6 servings.

  1. Good Morning Lady Crystal!

    Would you believe I’ve never had any sort of a shrimp salad??? We usually have scampi or breaded and fried…the real fattening versions! This one sounds good. I just may just have to try it! Thank you! Have a fun day!!!

  2. I love the Sarah鈥檚 Waldorf Salad. My mother used to make something very similar – so it not only taste good but it has brought back some wonderful memories with each bite. ummmmm
