I make this every Holiday season, even if it's just for the two of us at home. My best friend of 35 years, Betty, got this from her friend, Mary, who got it from her mom who got it from only God knows where!! It's a snap to make, easy to double or triple, and is a real hit at parties or just a little get together.
Serves about 8
Prep.Time: 30 minutes
1 can Cocktail Shrimp (7-oz.) -- drain and rinse
2 Tablespoons finely minced Onion
2 tablespoons finely minced Celery
Dash Garlic Powder
Dash Celery Seed
1/8 teaspoon Salt
Dash Black PeppeR
1 tablespoon or more Mayonnaise
3 Drops Lemon Juice
Rinse shrimp in cold water and pat dry on paper towels. Chop into small pieces into small bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Mixture should be bound only slightly by mayonnaise. Add a drop or two more lemon juice if desired. Cover and chill up to 2 hours before serving. Serve on decorative plate surrounded by specialty crackers or cocktail-sized pumpernickel or rye breads.
