Learning Sam Nichols' Recipe: Cool Shrimp Salad

Sometimes a cool way to spend summer is having a cold glass of wine with a light snack.

KTAB Chief Meteorologist Sam Nichols may know a lot about weather, but his talent can be seen inside the kitchen. He joined KTAB 4u host Matthew Torres and taught him and the viewers how to quickly put together a simple and tasty dish, a shrimp salad.

When it gets "Summertime hot" around the Nichols' house, this is one of mine and Sandy's favorite dishes. Try it, and let me know what you think! 
Shrimp Salad 
1 lb. Cooked Shrimp, peeled 
2 Tbsp. Pickle Relish (either Sweet or Dill, your choice) 
2 Tbsp. Onion, minced 
2 Tbsp. Celery, minced 
2 Tbsp. Green onions, minced 
1 Boiled egg, minced 
3 Tbsp. Mayonnaise (see note below) 
Rinse shrimp, and pat dry (you don't want them to be wet, it'll make the salad soggy) 
Cut shrimp into bite-size chunks 
Add dry ingredients and toss. 
Add 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise gradually. Mix thoroughly.  
Note: You may not want to use all 3 tbsp. of the mayonnaise; it just depends how "dry" or how "wet" you want your salad.  
Chill and serve cold with crackers and slices of cheese.
