Cilantro Shrimp Salad

Cilantro Shrimp Salad, originally uploaded by simpleviet.

This is a great salad any time of the year – light and refreshing.  I’ve made this with salt and pepper shrimp (see link below for recipe) or you can use left over meat or shrimp.

Cilantro Shrimp Salad

(Serves 4)


  • 1 bunch of cilantro roughly chopped (about 1 to 1 ¼ cup)
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic
  • ½ cup of low-calorie/non-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 chopped jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • 1 cup of olive oil


  • 1 lb mixed greens
  • 1 yellow peppers, chopped
  • Salt and pepper shrimp (see link above for recipe)

1.  Place into a blender or food processer the first 7 ingredients and blend until smooth.  On low speed, slowly drizzle in olive oil until the dressing is well blended. (Can be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator.)

2.  In a large bowl, toss mixed green and yellow peppers with ½ cup of dressing or more depending on desired taste.

3. Top with salt and pepper shrimp (hot or cold) and serve.
