Shrimp, fresh crunchy vegetables and a homemade vinaigrette come together deliciously in this super-easy main dish salad.


uncooked shrimp

1 pound(s), large variety, peeled and deveined

white wine vinegar

3 Tbsp

olive oil

1½ Tbsp, extra virgin

table salt

½ tsp, or to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

sweet red pepper(s)

½ cup(s), diced

uncooked celery

½ cup(s), very thinly sliced

uncooked red onion(s)

¼ cup(s), sliced, very thinly sliced

fresh parsley

¼ cup(s), chopped

fresh tarragon

1 Tbsp, chopped (optional)


  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 vinegar, oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Add shrimp, red pepper, celery, onion, parsley and tarragon (if using) to bowl; toss to mix and coat. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes for flavors to blend. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.


Add a diced avocado for a touch of richness. This is also delicious with calamari or scallops or a combination of the two. Serve on a bed of arugula or other greens with a crusty whole grain baguette (any changes to recipe could affect its SmartPoints value).
