Shrimp Salad with a Lemon Jello Side Dish

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me back in the 60's by a lady at my church when I lived in Michigan. Rosalie served it for holidays and at church social and card parties. Then she gave it to me to put in my cook book " Kitchen Chatter and Friends" book 2. So that all could have this recipe I post it here. She would serve it with this lemon jello salad on the side. This is so awesome.
