Shrimp Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue cheese is a delicious dressing to this shrimp salad. If you are not a blue cheese lover check out our other salad dressings under our recipe index or use your favourite dressing. I've not put amounts for the salad as it's simple to add more or less depending on number of people being served. Make it a meal or serve as a side salad. If your family does not eat shrimp, substitute with grilled chicken.

  • fresh spinach
  • fresh mushrooms
  • cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • green onions
  • avocado
  • hard boiled eggs
  • bacon, fried and crumbled
  • fresh shrimp
  1. Lay fresh spinach on a large platter and layer other ingredients to make a platter style salad. 
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire  sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbed 
  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar. Stir well to combine.
  2. Let dressing sit in refrigerator for at least 4 hours to allow flavours to combine. 


  1. That dressing recipe sounds delicious.

  2. I know a farmer who would absolutely love this salad (he loves blue cheese and I'm learning to like it too). That salad just looks SO yummy - my mouth is watering.
