Shrimp cold salad is an excellent option to prepare as a side dish for summer cookouts. This cold salad combines shrimp, pasta, green onion, tomato, green pepper and a dressing. The dressing is a combination of mayonnaise, Italian dressing and parmesan cheese. You can either use regular Italian or the creamy Italian for this recipe. If you would prefer you can also substitute imitation crab for the shrimp. Pre-cooked shrimp is the best option for this recipe, you can even use the little salad shrimps if you would prefer. Enjoy.

    What a delicious-sounding side dish! I have all these ingredients on hand, so I’ll make this lovely side dish for our Mothers Day Cookout later today. It looks to be very easy and quick to prepare, and will surely pair very nicely with everything else which we’ll be serving.
