Broccoli Shrimp Salad

Jolayne Cooper


This is a recipe I got several years ago. I thought it was one my mother made, but my sister doesn't remember it at all, so I must have got it from someone when I was in college. It is a favorite of mine and I hope you enjoy it.

How to Make Broccoli Shrimp Salad


  1. You can use the quantity of broccoli that you would like, this recipe is pretty flexible.
  2. You can use the broccoli raw, but I prefer to blanch it. To blanch the broccoli bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Place the broccoli in the water making sure all broccoli is under water and leave for only 1 minute. Then drain the water from the broccoli and put in ice water to stop the cooking.
  3. Put the broccoli in a bowl and add the chopped onion, shrimp that has been rinsed, water chestnuts (rinsed), and mayonnaise. Stir together and add salt and pepper to taste.
