Classy and Spicy Shrimp Salad Roll



Classy and Spicy Shrimp Salad RollThis sultry, yet cool summer meal mellows out the heat of the day with it’s own heat. Old Bay, of course, is a main ingredient of this shrimp salad sandwich. However, the true heat comes from cayenne pepper. Can you handle that!? It would be a great disappointment to not try this recipe! I’ve use this for years and its always a pleaser. I found it originally in an Old Bay cookbook, which I have since lost, but I had it stored in my recipe binder. Whew!  It would be great for a summer luncheon for a get-together with the girls or a light dinner with neighbors.

I started with these ingredients.


Gently fold the salad dressing mixture into the shrimp until coated evenly.


Place on a toasted croissant with lettuce of your choice.


Yum! Bite into this and savor every moment.
