Shrimp Salad

 

SONY DSCI’ve seen a variety of shrimp salads served at potlucks and company parties, but this is one of my favorites.  It’s adapted from a recipe published in Southern Living back in November of 2011.  It’s a great dish for so many events and all year long.  It is also best if it’s made in advance and stored in the refrigerator over night.

Start with the dressing for this recipe first.  Then set it aside while prepping the other ingredients.

1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. green onion, finely chopped (just the green part, use the onion bulb for another dish)
3 Tbsp. of olive oil
1 envelope (.75 oz) Zesty Italian dressing ( I use Good Seasons)

Now it’s time to prep the shrimp.  Use a 1 lb. bag of peeled and deveined, large cooked shrimp (26/30 count).  Thaw according to package directions and pinch the tails off.

Slice cherry tomatoes in half, drain the can of black olives and slice the artichoke heats in half.  Add this to the shrimp in a large bowl.

Pour the dressing over shrimp mixture and top with feta cheese. Toss all the ingredients to get everything well coasted with the dressing.  Then refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours and enjoy.

Ingredients
  1. 1- 24 count or 2- 12 count packages of King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  2. 1 1/2 lbs. of thinly sliced ham
  3. 24 slices of swiss of provolone cheese
For Sauce
  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, melted
  2. 3 Tbs. minced onion flakes
  3. 2 Tbs. worchestershire sauce
  4. 2 Tbs. prepared mustard
  5. 1 1/2 tps. of poppy seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the sweet rolls in half. Place the bottom portion in a large baking dish and layer the ham and cheese. Then place the top of the rolls back on top. At this point, I like to slice the individual sandwiches apart. This allows the sauce to get in between each yummy little sandwich.
  3. Combine the melted butter and all other sauce ingredients in a bowl. (I like to use a 2 cup measuring cup it's easy to melt the butter in and whisk the ingredients together, then easily pour over all the sandwiches.)
  4. After pouring the sauce over the sandwiches, cover the sandwiches by loosely laying a piece of foil over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
