This tasty Shrimp Cucumber Salad has a spicy dressing and a touch of mint, and this salad is perfect for a cool and refreshing summer dish. You can adjust the amount of hot sauce to make the salad as spicy or mild as you prefer.
I think this slightly-spicy Shrimp Cucumber Salad is perfect for summer parties when you want a refreshing salad. In my family a summer holiday celebration usually includes our families favorite shrimp and macaroni salad, but I’m guessing my shrimp-salad-loving family would like also like this salad with shrimp and cucumbers, that was adapted from a recipe by Ellie Krieger.
Ellie and I have some things in common when it comes to cooking style. But of course I rarely make recipes exactly the way they’re written, and I added a bit of cumin and Sriracha sauce for a slightly-spicy twist on Ellie’s salad.
And when it’s scorching hot I do think that cucumber and shrimp are two great ingredients to help keep you cool, and in this salad there’s also a touch of mint to bump up the flavor!
