Shrimp Potato Salad

Dannell M


I know it sounds crazy, but it is so delicious. Seau's Restaurant in San Diego serves this with their Mama Seau's teriyaki plate and although it's not traditional potato salad it is one that even the kids love.

It's a perfect summer side dish for any BBQ! Try it and let me know how you like it :)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Shrimp is an unusual and great addition to this potato salad recipe. Onion and pepper not only add a little crunch, they give the dish nice flavor. What we really loved, though, was the parsley. It adds that something you just can't put your finger on. Very simple and easy, this recipe is a great twist on an old favorite.
