Achieve bold and bright flavors within minutes in this colorful, summery-toned salad. The Old Bay Seasoning delivers a kick of signature spice and a beautiful red hue to cocktail shrimp. Plump and juicy peaches are marinated in olive oil and dill to create a delicately sweet and herbaceous base for the salad. And blue cheese adds a sharp, creamy, and delightfully funky element that partners well with the a caramelized shallots in the vinaigrette. Despite its impressive appearance, this summer salad is simple to assemble, but do so right before you plan to serve it for peak freshness.
