Lick-the-bowl good. That’s how I describe this easy herb dressing. This shrimp salad holds up nicely, so you can take it to work for lunch and make all your colleagues jealous; just let it come to room temp before enjoying it. Rinsing the onion takes away some of its bite, making it more mellow.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add shrimp; reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes or until shrimp are done. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 2

Combine crème fraîche and next 6 ingredients (through garlic) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add rye berries, onion, and shrimp; toss well to combine. Add cucumber; toss gently to combine.
