Endive gives this salad crispness, and a simple mayonnaise dressing gives it creaminess, but the main purpose for both, Ina says, is to "bring out the shrimpness." This shrimp salad can be prepared earlier in the day and assembled with endive just before
Servings: Serves 6–8
  • 3/4 pound cooked fresh shrimp , finely diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
