Ingredients

Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • ​Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste

Salad:

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb raw shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup celery finely diced
  • ½ red onion finely minced
  • 1 cup frozen green peas thawed

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan and add the shrimp in a single layer.
  • Season with salt and pepper and cook for 2-4 minutes per side, or until pink and opaque. Set aside in a salad bowl and allow them to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl add all the dressing ingredients and mix well to combine.
  • To the salad bowl with the shrimp add finely diced celery, minced onion and peas. Add in the yogurt dressing, toss well and serve!

Notes

  • Use raw shrimp instead of cooked shrimp. The texture and flavor will be so much better.
  • You may use any other oil instead of olive oil.
  • Peas: if you don't like peas, use other veggies of choice. You may also skip it completely.
  • yogurt: we used plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Sour cream will also work. For a non-dairy option, you can use dairy-free yogurt.
  • It is best to use fresh garlic cloves instead of garlic powder.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days
