Chopped Shrimp Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is the perfect way to celebrate the warm weather with a cool, refreshing, and flavor packed meal. We live about a block away from a delicious Greek restaurant, but every time we go I end up ordering their chopped shrimp salad. It's my favorite thing on their menu even though there is really nothing Greek about it. For a few weeks now I have been trying to recreate it at home and finally hit the right combination. The key is adding lots of fresh herbs to the salad including mint, basil, parsley, chives, and dill. It's so good when paired with the creamy avocado and sweet poached shrimp.
Since the salad itself has so much going on, it calls for a really simple dressing like this lemon vinaigrette. It's made with mostly lemon juice and olive oil with a touch of mustard, salt, and pepper to balance out the acidity of the lemon juice. I use this dressing all the time on salads and it has become one of our family's favorites. Now one other important thing to note about the salad. You can use regular fresh radishes or picked radishes if you can find them. The pickled radishes (like I have in the photos) do add something special but it is just as good with a crunchy fresh radish.
