Shrimp Louie Salad

Shrimp Louie

Shrimp Louie is another salad that I first learned about during visits to Castagnola’s Lobster House in Santa Barbara.  The salad is simple to prepare, cool, crunchy, and very satisfying.  The combination of the sweetness from the shrimp and the heat from the green onions and radishes tantalizes your taste buds and makes this a perfect dinner salad for a hot summer evening. 

This salad can be made with larger shrimp, or it can be made with smaller bay, or salad shrimp, as in the photo above.  Either way, it’s delicious.Shrimp Louie Salad

During the Winter months, Baker’s Man and I have been known to split this salad and serve it alongside a bowl of clam chowder.
