Spicy shrimp salad
Hello everyone. At last I get to post something today. It has been a few weeks since my last recipe but today I am bringing you this amazing spicy shrimp salad that is just plain sensational.
It has been a bit over two weeks since my last post and to be honest I really needed the brake. I have been really busy in school with finals so having time for both was just virtually impossible. Either way, I am sure you don’t mind.
I made up the salad dressing using a especial ingredient, five spice. It actually gives the salad a very distinctive and amazing flavor. I really don’t know how I thought of this but the end result was just awesome to the palate so I hope you get to try it.
I also did something different and grated the zucchini. It gives the salad a lot of crunchiness, which I like, it is not often that I get to use zucchini in salad but this totally work so I hope you get to try it as well.
I actually ended up making triple the amount of dressing. Normally, if I make any type of dressing I try to make a bit more so whenever I make a salad again, which is at least 2-3 per week, I don’t have to make it twice.
For the salad dressing I also used Truvia Nectar. The dressing totally made the salad stand out. My husband said it was one of the best dressings he had ever had so I guess that is a good sign!
Well I hope you get to make this spicy shrimp salad soon. It is quite easy and very different from any type of salad you might have ever had.
