Macaroni Salad with Shrimp

Debbie Sue


This is something I grew up with. My Mom had no real recipe. She just kept adding, until she thought it looked good! So I put it down on paper, (Mom added green pepper, I HATE GREEN PEPPER) We love it with the shrimp, but it's really yummy with grilled chicken breast too! Give it a try, hope you like it!
