Nanny’s Shrimp-Crab Salad

My grandmother (who we all call Nanny) came by the shop the other day with a little container of shrimp-crab salad.  I’d never heard of such a thing.  And I liked it. So I called her to get the recipe.  However, she does take a little after her mother (see Grandmother’s Chili Recipe), so if you like your recipes to be exact to the teaspoon, you’re out of luck today. But it’s easy and user-friendly, I promise.  And of course, if there are ingredients you don’t like, you can skip them or replace them. (Except for the mayo. I hate mayo, too, but you don’t taste it here — it just holds everything together.)

Shrimp-Crab Salad

  • Celery, chopped
  • Onion, chopped (I used green onion, and I thought it was pretty)
  • Fake crab (the cheap stuff at the seafood counter, like they use in sushi)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lemon juice
  • Boiled egg, chopped
  • Shrimp, cooked (Nanny likes to use those cocktail shrimp rings since they go on sale regularly)

Mix all together.  Refrigerate. That’s all, folks!

About Charity

I have an inexcusable number of cookbooks (and like to experiment with them), have worked in architectural antiques, and have been sewing most of my life. I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Apparel, Merchandising, & Design from Iowa State University. Doing household things (except for cleaning!) and hunting for antiques are my favorite pastimes.
