Hubby just asked me to ask you, I some one has a recipe for a salad, Shrimp Louie, : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Well would you believe, It seems when we lived in San Francisco, That he would go to some resturant and ate a huge salad, that he said had fresh cooked whole shrimp and lettuce , and differant kinds of vegs. No tomatoes, And he said dressing was green. Any one know how this is made?

Since it was the west coast is was probably a guacamole based dressing.

Yumm, Vicki makes the best FRESH guacamole. Methinks it comes from a Fit for Life recipe.

Sauce Louis: 1 cup Mayonnaise, 1/4 cup heavy cream (opt), 1/4 cup chili sauce, 1/4 cup finely chopped red or yellow bell peppers, 1/4 cup chopped scallions, 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Salt & pepper to taste.

The salad itself is Boston or bibb lettuce, red leaf lettuce in thin strips and any additional veggies you prefer, 2 cups shrimp or crab meat or whatever seafood, garnished with sliced boiled eggs and/or artichoke hearts and snipped fresh chives. Topped off with Sauce Louis

As this salad was invented in Seattle, it is very popular in my region made with fresh crab.

Thanks Laura, I knew someone would know, and you know it really sounds great. Tom said it was one of the best salads he had ever eaten. And Seattle and San francisco are a lot a like. Irene

You're welcome, Irene. This is a salad I get a craving for that won't go away until I eat my fill of it.

I just read your original post again and it says the dressing is green. There is a green goddess dressing that originated in San Fransisco that goes well on seafood salad. It kinda has a green hue to it.

1 cup Mayonaisse, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup snipped chives,1/4 cup minced fresh parsely, 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar, 3 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry and minced, salt & pepper.
