Servings: 4
This 1950s classic takes a modern turn with organic ingredients. Serve this as a first-course in a lovely avocado half, or as a cool entrée atop a bed or organic salad greens with tomato and boiled egg wedges.


  • 1 lb medium shrimp (24 to 28 count per pound), peeled
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp organic ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Santa Cruz Organic® 100% Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup celery, chopped (especially include the celery leaves)
  • 1/2 cup radish, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 3 Tbs red onion, minced or green onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbs flat-leaf parsley, minced
  • 2 ripe avocadoes
  • 3 Heirloom or seasonal tomatoes, sliced 1/3-inch thick


  • Boil water in stock pot, and add shrimp and seasoning; cook for two to three minutes until shrimp are just turning coral pink; drain shrimp in colander and cool down with running cold water. Discard bay leaf.
  • In a mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, ketchup, Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Juice, tarragon and garlic. Salt and pepper this salad dressing to taste.
  • Gently toss shrimp, celery, radish, onion, and parsley.
  • Serve in cavity of avocado half or as a scoop atop sliced in-season tomatoes; garnish with parsley sprig. This also works well as a salad tucked into a pita pocket with radish sprouts and cherry tomatoes.
