There is nothing as good as a delicious filling Shrimp Caesar Salad in the summer months. It is light and satisfying as a lunch or light dinner.
Salad for Summer
We have been having some awesome weather here lately. It’s like we went from winter, instantly to summer totally bypassing spring! Very unlike temps for this time of year in our area and we have been reveling in the warm sunshine! And, summer salads have taken over our meals recently.
In a small mixing bowl using a hand whisk, combine mayonnaise, water, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, pepper, hot chili sauce, worcestershire sauce, and garlic. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large salad bowl, toss the croûtons, 2 tablespoons cheese, shrimp, and lettuce together. Add the dressing and toss well to coat.
Garnish with pine nuts and chives (if using).
Tips And Substitutions
Buy pre-cooked shrimp that has already been peeled to shorten prep time.
Buy fresh grated parmesan cheese. I don’t recommend the dried version you can buy on the store shelf for this recipe, fresh is best.
Adjust the hot sauce to your own preference. The 1/4 teaspoon in this recipe gives only a mild flavor. If you like more spice, I would increase to 1/2 teaspoon to start.
