How to Make Shrimp and Pasta Salad
- Boil elbow macaroni to box directions for al dente pasta. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop pasta from overcooking.
- Finely dice celery, green onions including tails, and bell pepper. Drain black olives and quarter them.
- Chop shrimp.
- Place all ingredients chopped thus far into a large bowl along with cooked pasta. Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper.
- 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.
This salad can be used as a side or served alone as a main course on a bed of crisp greens.
