Easy shrimp salad
I have lots of seafood and fish recipes, and some of my favorites are for shrimp salad. And yes, I have several shrimp salad recipes! This one is simple, but it’s very tasty. I like to chop some of the shrimp to create more surface area. If you prefer whole shrimp, that’s fine, too!
Holle’s Basic Shrimp Salad recipe:
What you’ll need:

- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon chopped bread-and-butter pickles
- 1 teaspoon pickle juice
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- salt, to taste
- 1 large fresh tomato
Directions: Boil, peel, and devein shrimp. Chop, if desired. Dry shrimp thoroughly by squeezing in paper towels. Place shrimp in a small mixing bowl.
Add remaining ingredients except for tomato. Stir.
Cut the tomato into wedges and spoon shrimp salad on top. Serve chilled.
