Shrimp Mold Dip
This Shrimp Mold Dip is one of our family favorite recipes that we love and make every single year. It’s seriously the highlight of the Christmas feast for me and the rest of the family. But I’ve been kind of reluctant to share the recipe with you guys for two reasons. For one, it just kind of looks gross. It does. I’m aware. And two, this recipe has been either hit or miss for every one that has tried it outside of my side of the family. You either love it or hate. There’s not a lot of in between.
But in the end I decided to share it because I love it so much. And just in case you’re one of the awesome ones who might love it too.
This shrimp mold dip gets it’s shrimp-y color from a mixture of tomato and cream cheese, which are so delicious and creamy. Add in some celery and onion to give it crunch and a little zest, and of course the mini salad shrimp, and you’ve got yourself a pretty, vintage Shrimp Mold Dip.
My one word of caution is to make sure that it has enough time to set before serving! Serve with any and all of your favorite crackers.
