This is one of my favorite quick and easy salads. I have no kids tonight so I figured I wouldn’t have to share it! ūüėČ

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of shrimp peeled, deveined and cooked
  • 1 medium carrot diced small
  • 1 small red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 of a small red onion
  • a few handfuls of sugar snap peas chopped
  • 1/3 cup Paleo Mayo (see my paleo mayo post) You can use regular mayo, but then you are stuck with the yucky oils used in commercial mayo.
  • 1 tbs dried dill(feel free to use fresh dill)
  • 2¬† tsp lemon pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt or more¬†to taste

Start by dicing all your veggies and add to a large mixing bowl. If you don’t like raw red onion either omit it or use green onions/scallions instead. Cut your cooked shrimp into about 5 evenly sliced pieces per shrimp and add to the bowl. Add herbs, spices and mayo. Mix well. Then taste! Always taste test. does it need more salt? More dill? I think it tastes best cold, but whenever I make it I can’t seem to wait for it to chill in the fridge for an hour. I eat this just as is with a spoon! It also tastes great on Belgian¬†endive leaves, sliced¬†bell pepper wedges¬†or over mixed greens. And don’t get caught up on needing the exact veggies, use what’s fresh and what you have handy. Thawed green peas would taste good, celery, maybe diced raw jicama? There’s lot’s of options. Use what you like. If you don’t like dill,¬†try some thyme, parsley¬†or cilantro. Go crazy and experiment. ¬†

It’s really that easy and SOOOO yummy!
