A cool shrimp salad with asparagus and artichokes. Canned artichoke hearts are fine, but fresh cooked can be great.

Directions

  1. Cook the asparagus in boiling salted water until tender. Remove and cool under cold water. Reserve six stalks and cut remaining asparagus into 1 inch pieces.
  2. Cook and clean shrimp. Again reserve the best six and dice the remainder. In a bowl, combine shrimp and asparagus, mix gently with mayonnaise and lemon juice.
  3. In a separate bowl, marinate the artichoke hearts in 1 cup French dressing.
  4. Place shrimp and asparagus in an attractive shallow bowl. Garnish with sieved egg and arrange reserved asparagus on top to resemble the spokes of a wheel.
  5. Drain the artichoke bottoms and garnish each with a dollop of mayonnaise, 1 whole shrimp and 1 parsley sprig. Arrange them around the salad.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This looks better than it tastes, but it was pretty good. Next time I would use a little less dressing, and make sure you get artichoke bottoms, not hearts.

I little on the bland side but overall good. Very pretty. I followed the previous reviewers advice and cut back on the dressing and it worked out well. It's a great way to use up leftover shrimp from a party or recipe.
