How to Make Shrimp and Pasta Salad


  • 1Boil elbow macaroni to box directions for al dente pasta. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop pasta from overcooking.
  • 2Finely dice celery, green onions including tails, and bell pepper. Drain black olives and quarter them.
  • 3Chop shrimp.
  • 4Place all ingredients chopped thus far into a large bowl along with cooked pasta. Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper.
  • 5Toss 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.
