This classic recipe uses tender shrimp, fresh dill, lots of lemon juice, and crunchy vegetables in a light mayonnaise dressing.Try it today for lunch, and you’ll probably make it again by the weekend.  I love any deli salad, especially the “bound salads.” “Bound” in this case means suspended in mayonnaise as happens with Tuna Salad, Chicken Salad, and Ham Salad.

Shrimp Salad might be the fanciest of all the bound deli salads.In this version, poach raw shrimp in a liquid broth of lemon, dill, parsley, sugar, salt, and whole peppercorns.Once cooked, plunge into ice water to stop the cooking.

Toss the shrimp in a simple yet flavorful dressing of mayonnaise (of course), shallots, lemon, dill, and parsley (similar flavor to the poaching liquid).It’s a high-protein, low-carbohydrate, flavor-packed dish.If you peel the shrimp before you poach them, you can save the shells to make a delicious Homemade Shrimp Stock, too.

Or, sock the shells away in your freezer until you have more.Enjoy Shrimp Salad in lettuce wraps, on toast, or with avocado for a simple Shrimp Avocado Salad.It’s easy, flavorful, delicious cooking perfect for special lunches, first courses at dinner parties, or picnics.
