Since Rhode Island is known as the Ocean State, I think this recipe represents my state well. Shrimp add a new twist to traditional potato salad.


  • 1 pound cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 cups cubed peeled potatoes, cooked and cooled
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced, optional


  1. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with lemon juice; refrigerate. Add potatoes, onions and parsley. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, salt, pepper, tarragon, mustard, celery seed and garlic if desired; pour over potato mixture and toss. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
