Shrimp Salad

We had a potluck at work the other day and since I anticipated their being lots of heavy type foods I wanted to make something a bit lighter. This recipe from Gina's Skinny Recipes is a sure winner! I changed some things, but either way would be great. This is crisp, refreshing and filling!

Shrimp Salad

The Stuff:
3/4 pound shrimp, peeled
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 tablespoon red onion (Gina adds less, but I thought more was good)
1 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise (if you haven't tried this, give it a shot, yum!)
2 tablespoon fat free plain Greek yogurt
Seasoned Salt, Chili powder, dash cumin
30 cucumber slices, about 1 large cucumber
Chopped chives

The How To:

Run a knife through the shrimp once or twice, add to a mixing bowl
Add celery

Add Onion, mayonnaise, yogurt and seasoning

Mix until well combined

Place a heaping tablespoon of shrimp salad on each cucumber slice

This is a small portion of the shrimp salad, you can beef it up
Top with chives and eat up!

Weight Watcher Friends: 1 cucumber slice with 1 tablespoon of shrimp salad is 0pp, 4 are 2pp
