During the hot summer months, I love eating all types of salads.
That includes fruit salads, grain salads, bean salads, veggies salads, meat salads (yes there is such a thing, like this Grass-fed lamb and Quinoa Salad), and of course… shrimp salad!
Salads of all kinds are generally light, refreshing, cooling, and easy to prepare.
For example, the Shrimp Salad below takes about 5 minutes to prepare.
You can eat it as soon as it’s ready, or if you are patient, let it marinate for 30 minutes to enhance its delicious flavor.
- In a pot of salted boiling water, drop shrimp in for 1 minute.
- Remove shrimp from the boiling water and drain in a colander.
- In a large bowl combine shrimp, shallot, cucumber, tomato, pepper, and cilantro.
- Whisk olive oil, lime juice, and sea salt.
- Pour dressing on top of shrimp and vegetables.
- Mix thoroughly and marinate 25-30 minutes or overnight (in the fridge).
