Now when I say we love entertaining, that might be an understatement. We love having family and friends over. We love planning a good party, making good food and hanging out with good people. This really livens up our house during the holidays!

I always like to have a couple of appetizers that can be ready in minutes. This Southern Shrimp Salad Ritz Toppers recipe is one of those recipes that can be made in advance. Then you can make them on an as needed basis or when guests stop by.

These Southern Shrimp Salad Ritz Toppers are delicious party food has quickly become one of our favorite recipes. The kids asked us to make them twice since we brought them to an event and we like them just as much.

We made one adjustment to the original Nabisco recipe and added a half Shrimp on top of the shrimp salad and cracker. We can always use more shrimp, right?

They have so many fabulous types of toppers that if shrimp is not your thing, there is certainly something there you will enjoy. But seriously, I never say no to shrimp.
