This Polish shrimp salad recipe or sałatka z krewetek (sah-WAHT-kah zeh kreh-VEH-tek) is another example of Poles' love of FINELY chopped ingredients. This salad calls for hard-cooked eggs, cooked carrots, celery, onion and diced pickle along with the tiny canned shrimp. Sugar is traditionally added to many mayonnaise-based salads in Poland, but you can skip it or use salad dressing, which already has sugar in it.
