Shrimp Dip

Does your mother have staples for every party she throws? Mine does. Seven-layer salad, mini ham sandwiches, olives, cheese and crackers, sweet and sour cocktail wieners, etc. The list is actually quite long, and her menus vary a little based on the season. When I was little, my mother and father would host bridge parties, birthday parties, holiday parties, work anniversary parties, etc. year-round. I loved it. My sister and I would help making the finger foods. Once the party started, we were to be “seen and not heard;” but we got to eat as many appetizers as we liked as long as we kept our clothes clean.

When I was in high school, my mother found a new appetizer to add to her repertoire: Shrimp Dip. This is a “clean” version of the recipe she was given by a friend. I don’t trust mayo that I don’t make myself, and dairy doesn’t do me any favors. To my mother’s surprise, mine tastes just like hers! We hope you’ll like it as much as she does.

We like this recipe so much, we included it as an exclusive in Primal Palate’s Best of 2014 eBook. It’s an amazing collection of over 150 recipes from some great friends and colleagues. We know it’s already halfway through 2015, but this timeless ebook is a must-have. Check it out!
