The 'Food52 Blog' recently put together a recipe for a creamy shrimp salad served on a flaky croissant. Although egg salad and chicken salad are delicious sandwich fillings, this recipe puts a fresh spin on the simple dish.

The tasty sandwich features a creamy shrimp salad made from a white bean base. Instead of using regular mayo, this recipe calls for a dairy-free mixture of white beans, lemon juice, mustard and agave. The bean paste gives the salad a mayonnaise-like consistency without the heavy dairy taste. The rest of the salad is composed of fresh ingredients such as chopped shrimp, green onions and diced celery. The salad is then served on a flaky croissant, which gives it a light and buttery base.

The dish is perfect for last-minute picnics or summer BBQs.
