I usually prefer my salads to be jam-packed with ingredients.  By the time it is all said and done, I may as well have eaten a double cheeseburger and fries!

This Shrimp Salad has only a few ingredients.  But it is bursting with flavor thanks to the Creamy Chimichurri Homemade Salad Dressing!

I have been obsessed with chimichurri lately.  Why?  I don’t know.  I just get obsessed with random things from time to time.

  1. Mmmm that bright green dressing looks so good! You’re so right, I really like making my own dressings because I find so many are so salty =/

      Thanks Lisa! I think most processed food tastes like licking salt … So I Agree 😀

  2. This looks like such a gorgeous recipe Nicole! I love shrimp on salads & will have to try it. Now if we could only get fresh shrimp way up here in Wisconsin…

      Oh, me too! I have to use frozen shrimp. I’d kill for some fresh shrimp with the heads still on!
