Saturdays with Rachael Ray: Summer Shrimp Rolls

For the first time, I’m participating in Taste and Tell’s weekly blog feature, Saturdays with Rachael Ray! I’ll probably be doing this for the next couple of Saturdays, because I have some great Rachael recipes to share.

These summer shrimp rolls are absolutely delicious, and true to their name, they are exactly the kind of thing you want to eat during the hot summer months (and boy is it hot; I think we’ve only had a couple of days under 90 degrees during the month of July here in Ohio). There is very little actual cooking required -- mostly it’s just chopping the ingredients and mixing them all together. I loved all of the textures in these rolls: the juicy shrimp, the crunchy bell peppers, the creamy dressing. The sharp bite of the scallions and the tangy flavor of the lemon were a perfect counterbalance to the sweetness of the corn, peppers and shrimp. We loved these, and will definitely be making them again!
