Ingredients needed to make a Shrimp Louie

EPIC Shrimp Louis Salad Board - how to

Just the way my Aunt Lillian would always make a shrimp salad for Easter Sunday!

Aunt Lillian taught me that hospitality has nothing to do with a perfect home or gourmet food, but it’s how we make our guests feel welcomed and comfortable in our homes.

Simplicity. Selflessness. Friendliness.

Make the dressing ahead of time and chill. Or, guess what? You can buy store-bought Thousand Island dressing!

Prepare the board by adding the bowl first, then the fresh foods in a circular pattern (so pretty!) Want to make the perfect eggs? Perfect soft boiled eggs are the best!

Right before the guests arrive, heat your dinner rolls.

EPIC Shrimp Louis Salad Board - Rhodes Rolls


You may remember my Party Ham Rolls Charcuterie Board, or this Tuna Melt Sliders Game Day Board, where I used Rhodes Bake-N-Serv™ Warm-N-Serv™Artisan French Rolls.

Rhodes Bake-N-Serv™ Soft Yeast Rolls come in packages of 6 and 12 rolls per bag.

You literally bake and serve.

They taste so good … just the way my Aunt Lillian made hot rolls for Easter or Mother’s Day! :)

Easter Shrimp Louis Salad Board
What is a Shrimp Louie?

A Shrimp Louie is a traditional salad from California (originated in San Francisco in the 1900’s), made with shrimp, lettuce, egg and tomato.

We love to use spring mix lettuce!

The dressing is similar to Thousand Island dressing, made with mayonnaise, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a few more ingredients. Oh, and don’t forget the hard-cooked eggs, Roma tomatoes, green pepper, black olives, and red onions.

And sliced lemons and parsley for garnish!
