Seafood salad is a dish made from a combination of various seafood ingredients, such as shrimp, crab meat, lobster, squid, or octopus, mixed with vegetables and dressed with a flavorful dressing. The seafood can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as boiling, grilling, or frying, and then chopped into bite-sized pieces.
The vegetables typically used include lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and onion, although other vegetables like bell peppers and carrots can also be used. The dressing can vary from a simple vinaigrette to a more complex mixture of mayonnaise, sour cream, herbs, and spices. Seafood salad is a refreshing and flavorful dish that is often served as a light lunch or dinner, especially during warmer months.
