Bring on the Bay love…
Old Bay seasoning’s earthy and spicy flair delivers a delicious punch to your traditional shrimp salad. And we love this salad’s versatility. Serve it as a light lunch over a bed of lettuce, as a sandwich or wrap, or simply with some crackers as a tasty appetizer. Old Bay packs paprika-level heat, but if you want a little more, add in a pinch of cayenne pepper powder.
