Spectacular Shrimp Salad Main Dish Recipe

A few years back, I was asked to bring a salad to a potluck. I didn't want to bring an ordinary dish, so I created this recipe. Everyone was pleased with the light vinegar-and-oil dressing.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/2 pound frozen medium cooked shrimp, thawed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • Leaf lettuce, optional


  • 1. Slice cucumber in quarters lengthwise; cut into thin pieces and place in a bowl. Add the shrimp, beans and parsley.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and lemon-pepper; pour over salad and toss to coat. Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve over lettuce if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
