There is so much potential in a summer salad — it’s the perfect way to play with flavors and create a meal that’s light and delicious.

We eat salads all year long. I even recently won a salad contest held by Certified Angus Beef Brand.

Shrimp plays a major part in my summer salads. A quick, easy steam and shrimp are ready for whichever meal you have in mind. Serve shrimp as is or turn them into a flavorful salad to use in sandwiches or top your best greens!

A light beer like a lager works best for steaming shrimp. Leave the shells on. As the shrimp cooks, it kind of gets basted by the rising steam. The steam condenses on the lid and trickles over the shrimp.
Kitchen Hack of the Day… I use my pasta pot with the insert to steam shrimp. The pot cooks evenly and the stainless cleans up so nice. Much better use than steaming with those flimsy baskets.

Cinco de Mayo was still fresh in my memory when I thought of the cilantro lime dressing. These flavors blend perfectly with a lighter beer enhanced shrimp.Beer Steamed Shrimp Salad

    Wow…This salad looks amazing!!!! I live in Maryland and the Shrimp Salad is wonderful but I tire of the Old Bay Mayo that is the tradition here. I’m loving this lightened up version with yogurt and lime. We will be trying it very soon!
