Shrimp salad does not have to be a fattening nightmare: Swap full-fat mayonnaise for fat-free and you're well on your way to a slimmed-down version of a classic.
Ingredients

uncooked shrimp

1 pound(s), large, peeled and deveined

fat free mayonnaise

cup(s)

uncooked celery

2 rib(s), medium, chopped

uncooked red onion(s)

3 Tbsp, chopped, minced

fresh parsley

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

capers

1 Tbsp, drained

Dijon mustard

2 tsp

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook shrimp in a large pot of rapidly boiling water until bright pink and cooked through, about 2 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, celery, onion, parsley, capers and mustard; mix well. Stir in shrimp; season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
Notes
Turn this recipe into light chicken salad by swapping cubed, cooked chicken breast for the shrimp.
