This easy buffalo shrimp salad, featuring SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp from our sponsor, will help you score a #MomVictory during that midweek madness for a delicious family meal and a #WinOnWednesday!
Wednesdays around here are just a little bit hectic. By Wednesday, everyone is starting to get tired – including me! Wednesday also happens to be the busiest day of our week with activities in the evenings. We used to eat out every single Wednesday night, but this year I was determined to stop that habit and eat at home instead.
Because we're trying to get homework and evening chores done while I'm also making dinner, I need quick and easy meals on Wednesday nights. I created this easy buffalo shrimp salad recipe to make a delicious dinner in a snap.
Easy Buffalo Shrimp Salad Recipe
Salads are a quick and easy way to feed a family on a busy weeknight. Everyone can help cook, too. I like to add protein to the salad when it's our main dish. Since it's Lent season and we try to eat fish at least once a week, I used SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp that SeaPak sent me on our salad. Plus I could always use a new shrimp recipe. We used to go our for buffalo wings on Wednesdays so I decided to add homemade buffalo sauce to our shrimp.
You can leave the shrimp plain, too, if your kids don't like spicy food. Just toss the cooked SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp with the buffalo sauce to get it well coated.
In keeping with the “buffalo” theme, I added celery and carrots to the tomatoes and onions in the salad. I also tossed in some goat cheese because I forgot to get blue cheese. Toss it all together and serve with either blue cheese or ranch salad dressing. It took me about 15 minutes to put the salad together for a quick and easy dinner.
