Here is one of my favorite summertime salads. Steamed shrimp are mixed with macaroni, vegetables, and fresh summer tomatoes to make this delicious salad. It is given a little spicy kick with the use of cocktail sauce (made with horseradish), our Seafood Rub and our Lemon Pepper blend. This is a perfect salad to serve on those hot summer evenings - so refreshing, and oh-so satisfying. Enjoy!
Seafood Rub Blend, Lemon Pepper, Celery Salt
3 cups cooked, macaroni
1 lb cooked & peeled medium-sized shrimp
1/2 cup each chopped: fresh tomatoes, green onions, red pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/3 cup mayonnaise (can use light)
1/2 cup ranch salad dressing (can use light)
1/3 cup cocktail sauce (with horseradish)
2 tsp Seafood Rub blend
1 tsp Lemon Pepper
1/2 tsp Celery Salt
1 Tblspn Lemon Juice
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tblspns chopped fresh parsley
In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, shrimp, and the chopped vegetables. In a separate bowl, make the sauce by mixing together the mayonnaise, ranch dressing, cocktail sauce, spices, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the sauce over the shrimp and pasta combination and mix until the sauce coats all of the contents of the salad. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Serve the chilled salad on lettuce leaves and garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
