Shrimp Salad with Dairy-Free Caper-Lemon Dressing

Summer is flying by! I wanted to quickly share an easy, hearty shrimp salad with you. It’s based on one I had recently at a food shop in Brooklyn I like to check out every now and then called Bklyn Larder. To serve, just place the shrimp salad over chopped romaine or field greens.

    Oh Thanks!! I have a ton of basil that I will use instead of parsley!

  2. This is so simple! And it looks very good:). Have any substitutions for the mustard?
