Seafood Salad

I came up with this recipe because mini shrimp was on sale for $2.49.  For that price, I knew I wanted to buy them and then figure out what to do with them later.  Dennis discovered them in the freezer and asked, "are you going to shrimp salad?"  So, that's what I did.

I've never made Shrimp Salad.  So, I thought about the things I like to do with shrimp and then figured out a dressing to bring it all together.  Since I like my seafood spicy, mine has a lot of kick; you may decide to omit or substitute. 

1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 tsp chili oil (can use olive oil instead)
1/2 tsp dried dill 
splash of lime juice
pinch salt and pepper and cayenne pepper flakes
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup cucumbers, diced
1 tablespoon capers
8 oz. mini shrimp (thawed)
4 oz. imitation crab, cut into small pieces
5 sesame seaweed snacks, crumbled up

  1. Whisk together dressing ingredients: Greek yogurt, Ranch, chili oil, dill, lime juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a medium size bowl.   
  2. Add celery, cucumber, capers, mini shrimp, and imitation crab.  Stir together to combine.  
  3. When you serve, top with crumbled up seaweed snacks for a little extra sesame and salt.
