Shrimp Salad

shrimp and pasta salad


This shrimp and pasta salad is great for the hot days we have been having.  There is very little cooking involved – especially if you cheat like I did and get the shrimp already cooked.  It has vegetables, shrimp and pasta, so it really could be a one dish meal, but would also be great as a side.  And, it looks pretty and summery enough for guests.  

I used an orange bell pepper in this recipe, but any color would do.  I usually use red, but happened to have an orange one on hand that I didn’t want to go bad.  I cut my celery and pepper pretty fine, but cut it how you like it.  Hope you enjoy.
