6 servings

2 lbs. medium raw shrimp, shelled and deveined

1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayonanaise(preferably Hellmann's)

2 cups green seedless grapes, washed and patted dry(get firm ones that pop in your mouth)

1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped(or to taste)

salt and freshly ground black pepper

lettuce leaves

1. Bring 4 quarts of salted water to a boil and drop in the shrimp. Wait one minute; empty the pot into a colander set in the sink. Let the shrimp cool in the colander.

2. Transfer the cooled shrimp to a bowl.

3. In a separate small bowl, whisk the sour cream and mayonnaise together well.

4. Pour the dressing over the shrimp and toss gently. Add the grapes, chopped dill and salt and pepper to taste, then toss once more and refrigerate, covered, for at least four hours. DO NOT SKIP THE REFRIGERATION STEP; THE SHRIMP NEED TO ABSORB THE DRESSING!

5. Just before serving, taste and correct the seasoning, then toss again. Arrange on a platter of lettuce leaves and serve immediately.
