Neptune Salad is my recipe of the day with the blogging group From Our Dinner Table. We group weekly to post new recipes on a variety of common topics. This week we’re featuring Retro Recipes.
I had recently seen Neptune salad offered for sale in the deli section at the market. Seeing it there, I was reminded of how we made this many times in years past. It is a very retro kind of recipe, but also timeless.
I hadn’t made it in awhile, so was inspired to make it again. It is very easy to put together, much like tuna salad or chicken salad, except with seafood instead. And since it calls for cooked salad shrimp and imitation crab, you don’t even have to turn on the stove!
This would make a great menu addition during Lent and for fish Fridays. Feel free to serve this up on a lettuce leaf, or as a topping for butter crackers, or even stuffed into a croissant. (I can hear the hubs doing his Homer Simpson impression – “Mmm, croissants…”. LOL)
However and whenever you serve this salad, I hope you enjoy this blast from the past.
