A Delicious Shrimp Louie Salad for Fit Friday

I don’t know about you but here in Phoenix the last thing I want to do is turn on a hot oven during dinnertime. We’ve been enjoying several delicious salads and Shrimp Louie is one of our favorites.

You begin by layering a large platter with washed and dried crisp lettuce. I like the butter variety for this salad.

In the center place a generous mound of delicious cooked shrimp.

Next add in tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado's, lemon slices (to squeeze over salad), olives, and hard boiled egg slices.

There are a variety of Louie dressings, this is my favorite as it’s so easy:

1 cup of mayonnaise

2 tablespoons of chili sauce (also called cocktail sauce)

1 tablespoon of dried or fresh parsley

1 tablespoon of steak sauce

1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

Mix well and chill for one hour.

Then enjoy!

Yummy! I love Greek salad but I'm also a big fan of a chopped salad!

Just took shrimp from the freezer-I think I will try this salad. I hate turning my oven on-it is gas and heats up the house something awful! Thanks for the idea.

I love 7 layer salad, and my favorite meal is to go to Charlestons and have their house salad with all the fixin's (bacon, cheese and diced eggs) and blue cheese dressing. They also give you a warm croissant drizzled with honey. I also get a small bowl of their baked potato soup, which is amazing. It's a filling meal and somewhat healthy.....really.

Love ya'

It all looks wonderful apart from the eggs. Eggs give me the shivers, but that is just me. I'd devour everthing else.

It's hot here too.
Hugs!
(and thoughts of cool delicious things like snow cones and watermelons!)
