It all begins with tossing your shrimp into a skillet with a bit of butter and olive oil, garlic, and then, once your shrimp have fully cooked, you add in your favorite buffalo sauce.

Once that is all ready, you pile your plate full of your favorite salad greens, slices of red onion, tomatoes, cucumbers, and then pile on the buffalo shrimp. Finally, you top it with hunks of blue cheese, if you like it, for one of the best shrimp salads you’ve ever tasted.
