Hope you all had a lovely long weekend! We had a bright & sunny Mountain Film festival here in Telluride, CO. With temperatures heating up we all crave lighter food ~ such as this Curry Shrimp Salad.

All you need are s few simple ingredients. No cooking is required, which is ideal for hot summer days.

If you have fresh herbs on hand all the better.

Oregano is nice. So is Thyme.

We love ‘em all here!

I adore the mountain film festival. I attended a few years ago and spotted a few celebs, had a great picnic in the park, and did some hiking. I miss Telluride. And this curry shrimp salad, love!

Marla,
My thyme has gone bonkers (OMG why did the autocorrect want to change that by removing the K??) AND my CSA farm share just started back up (hello, big bags of salad greens!) so this salad is right up my alley. I just need to pick up some shrimp.
Thanks!

Kirsten, you are hilarious! Can I borrow some thyme?

I had a curried shrimp salad recipe from 1970. It was awesome then but it seems that I have lost it. Did a search on Pinterest and found your recipe. WooHoo!
This Texas gal is so happy! I ‘m going to make it on Christmas Eve along with Texas crab cakes with garlic bread!! Thank you for sharing!! Can’t get enough !
