This dip dates way back, to my high school days! Well, to be honest it’s not actually that far in the real stretch of a life’s time (graduated 11 years ago) but you know what I mean. To have someone give you a recipe that you are still making years later means it must really be a good one. And this is one of those. My mom used to always help out for school dances with snacks and such as needed, and this was one of the recipes she always made to serve. I’m not even sure who the original recipe came from, but I know that it was always a favorite of everyone. At least of those brave enough to actually eat on a date, which was not me. Why on earth were we so silly back then anyway? Like our dates thought that since we wouldn’t eat in front of them, maybe they assumed we didn’t eat at all. Teenagers! That’s about all you can say about that. Now I have to go listen to “Brown Eyed Girl” real quick because I’m feeling all nostalgic and never once do I remember a school dance where that song wasn’t played. Ahhhh, the memories!
P.S. This photo was taken super quick before one of my children’s birthday parties so please excuse the technical flaws. I know all of you moms will understand!
2 cups mayonnaise
1 small bunch green onions, chopped
1 can petite shrimp, drained
Mix all ingredients well; store in refrigerator until ready to serve. This dip is best prepared a day in advance to allow the shrimp time to flavor the mayonnaise.
