Shrimp Salad

Shrimp salad is a great summer lunch.
Serve it on a bed of lettuce or spinach.
Buy your shrimp already cooked and dress it to your taste.
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to get it nice and chilled. Serve with hot French bread or popovers.

Shrimp Salad
1 LB  shrimp, cooked and peeled, tails removed (dry on paper towels)
1/3-1/2 C mayonnaise
1-2 celery ribs, diced-about 1/2 C
1-2 green onions, chopped-about 1/4 C 
salt and pepper to taste ( I used 1/2 t garlic salt, 1/8-1/4t pepper)
2 T chopped fresh parsley
1 T lemon juice
Combine all ingredients and chill. 
Optional add-ins: chopped tomato, cubed avocado, chopped fresh cilantro
 or:  2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped, 1 t Dijon mustard, fresh dill   

*or you can buy a good shrimp salad already prepared at  Costco.
