Sometimes, though, the ocean breeze is just salty and fishy. As for this salad? Hard to say.
However, bandleader/musician Jimmy Dorsey liked Regatta Shrimp Salad, as we see in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune (of June 7, 1942). Local grocers were apparently featuring something called the "Salad Serenade." I don't know if that involved music or mayo. Or perhaps both. It was a promotional Thing in the early 1940s in some other places, too, like Tuscaloosa and San José. Anyway, Jimmy D. liked Regatta Shrimp Salad a lot.

You can see a larger version of this here, if you dare. You can enlarge it a bit and see the exciting cartoon story of just how Pamela learns from her friend Mae that only real mayonnaise is wonderful and fabulous. She is "amazed" and tells some dork named Joe that she is going to go stock up ASAP. He says "Okay kid, I could go for a lot of salads like Mae's!" I can just hear him trying to say this in a Humphrey Bogart voice. This would kind of put me off, if I was Pamela.
