i love macaroni salad and my boyfriend is a big grilling and cooking guy and i try every now and then to cook for him and impress him. well i made this for him and he loved it and hes not a seafood person at all. my 2 year old daughter also loves it as well so its a great dish for everyday as well as a party.. the shrimp could be substituted for any shellfish of your choice if you want to try a new take on it
