Shrimp salad is really a “no recipe” recipe. You can simply toss some chopped cooked shrimp with mayonnaise and whatever seasonings you like, and you’ve got shrimp salad. I’m sharing the my version because every time I serve it I get requests for the recipe. It uses ingredients you probably have on hand. The secret to my shrimp salad is chopped fresh tarragon and two seasonings: Cajun and Old Bay. The salad can be served atop lettuce leaves for lunch or spread on crackers with cocktails.
Tarragon Shrimp Salad
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve. When ready to serve, place a lettuce leaf on each salad plate. Top with a scoop of the shrimp salad and serve with the crackers.
Makes 4 main dish or 6-8 side dish servings.
