Introduction

This salad is the perfect snack on a hot summer's day. But you can enjoy it on cold days too. You can either use fresh or frozen shrimp, any which way you like. The title is straightforward but you can easily take it up a notch and use fancy words. I prefer it plain. But it's delicious!

  • Drain shrimps, cool completely, and place in large mixing bowl. Discard ginger slices and bruised garlic clove.
  • Mix in the other ingredients gently until well combined. I prefer to use a long wooden spoon for this.
  • Carefully strew the pieces of cucumber and mix gently with the clean handle of your wooden spoon, just enough to disperse it all throughout the salad.
  • Chill for at least two hours.
