Shrimp louie salad

The shrimp louie salad has a fresh and bright taste, allowing the dish to serve not only as an excellent appetizer but also as a side dish to any meat. It consists of just a few simple ingredients. However, the uniqueness of the salad is given by the signature Louie dressing, which is a mix of mayonnaise and chili sauce, complemented by the flavors of lime (or lemon) juice, Dijon mustard, and/or ketchup. Moreover, the spiciness of the dressing can be adjusted to taste, experimenting with different variations and amounts of chili sauce.
