Serves:

12-15

Prep:

40 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

2 can(s)
shrimp
2 c
small elbow macaroni
1 c
mayonnaise
3
celery stalks
3
green onions
1/2
bell pepper
1 can(s)
black olives
salt and pepper to taste
1
lemon zest, grated
juice from 1/2 zested lemon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil elbow macaroni to box directions for al dente pasta. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop pasta from overcooking.
2
Finely dice celery, green onions including tails, and bell pepper. Drain black olives and quarter them.
3
Chop shrimp.
4
Place all ingredients chopped thus far into a large bowl along with cooked pasta. Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper.
5
Toss with mayonnaise. I use Hellmann's as my family prefers this brand, but you use whatever brand you prefer.

Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend.

Served chilled.

This salad can be used as a side or served alone as a main course on a bed of crisp greens.
