This easy buffalo shrimp salad is made with frozen shrimp, tossed in buffalo sauce and then added to a salad.
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. You can add protein to the salad when you serve it as a main dish. Since it’s Lent season and we try to eat fish at least once a week.
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.

I #WinOnWednesday usually by tossing together some leftovers to create a completely new meal.
I usually #WinOnWednesday by having planned-ahead leftovers. For example, if I roasted a chicken on Sunday, Wednesday night’s dinner might be chicken and vegetables in cream sauce over rice. Simple and delicious.
I #WinOnWednesday when my husband surprises me by cooking dinner!
I win on Wednesdays by calling my mom for a couple hours to chat.

I #WinOnWednesday with a slow-cooker meal.
I win on Wednesday by making it pizza night. Hubbie always gets pizza on the way home since it is soccer practice night and we are always rushing to leave the house.

On Wednesdays I try to make at least one extra meal to have in the frig or freezer so I can have a #StressFreeSunday.

On Wednesdays I create a big and I mean big pot of chili mac for the whole family. They love and eat until there is nothing left.
Sound very good – I think my niece will enjoy this. She’s a busy mom with 2 little ones and a full time job besides. I’ll be sure to share – thanks!
Thanks, Jackie! It’s so quick and easy – perfect for a busy mom!
