If you are a shrimp lover, shrimp salad is one of the fastest ways to get this delightful shellfish on your table. Ready in only 17 minutes, you can cut even more time off of this recipe by purchasing pre-cooked shrimp. Most fishmongers will steam shrimp to perfection while you do your other grocery shopping. Not just creamy, we have included celery for crunch, parsley for freshness and capers for a hint of brine. Serve this on a bed of mixed greens or with some crackers. Turn this recipe into chicken salad by swapping cubed, cooked chicken breast for the shrimp.
