1 lb. shrimp, peeled, deveined and cooked
1 cup chopped celery
1 large carrot, chopped
1/4 cup green onion, chopped (white and green tops)
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper to taste
In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Chill until ready to serve.
Comment: I found this recipe in an allrecipes booklet. I made just a couple of changes. I chopped my carrot instead of shredding it. I used only 1/4 cup of chopped green onions instead of 1/2 cup of regular. And I decreased the mayonnaise from 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup and could probably have cut that down to about 1/4 so I recommend adding the mayo a little at a time. I wasn't sure that I would like this. I simply couldn't imagine mayo and shrimp but some people do dip their shrimp in tartar sauce which has mayo as an ingredient. I wasn't sure about the boiled eggs and shrimp but used them anyway. What I found when making this dish was 1 - you can taste each ingredient individually which makes it unique. 2 - it's a perfect light meal served on a bed of lettuce with crackers. 3 - this dish is simply delicious!
