Remoulade Shrimp and Pasta Salad

Sena Wilson


This salad makes a delicious and refreshing one-dish meal. It is easy and can be prepared ahead of time. The parmesan ranch dressing in this recipe (thank you Cindy!) really adds flavor to the shrimp with an otherwise basic and updated remoulade sauce. You could use your own favorite ranch dressing but don't forget to add parmesan as it is an essential ingredient. The density of the thick dressing holds it all together. This recipe makes a large quantity and is even better served the next day.
