This easy Thai Shrimp Salad is ready in less than 15 minutes and is a great weeknight dinner option. It’s light, refreshing, and with an amazing chilli lime vinaigrette, it’s delicious!

Do you like Thai food? Then you’ll love the flavors of this salad! It’s definitely not traditional Thai food, but it’s inspired by all the delicious flavors of Thai food. We topped it with shrimp, crispy wonton sticks, water chestnuts, sliced ​​almonds, and fresh chopped cilantro. You can mix and match as much as you want. We finished it all off with two dressings: a Thai-inspired chili lime vinaigrette and peanut butter.

Not only is this salad healthy, but it’s also easy to make! To make it easier, you can always cheat a little and buy precooked shrimp and toss it in the vinaigrette to make it quicker, but I prefer freshly cooked shrimp myself.

  • Which salad greens would work best in this recipe?

    The photos and video included with this recipe show this salad of mixed leafy greens. You can use mixed Asian greens, spinach, shredded romaine lettuce, or another similar mix.

  • Should I leave the shrimp tails on or remove them?

    Let’s face it, shrimp without tails is ugly. Now, with that being said, if you’re not vain about food, remove it! It definitely makes any shrimp dish easier to eat. Food photographers, TV foodies, and restaurants often leave tails for aesthetic purposes, but you don’t have to fall into the same trap. Removing them before cooking takes just as much effort as when serving, but others at your table will probably appreciate it if the tails are already removed for them.

  • Can I use precooked shrimp?

    We prefer freshly cooked shrimp because they cook quickly, but you can also use precooked shrimp for convenience. Be sure to season with salt and pepper and drizzle the marinade/sauce over the top.
