Shrimp Salad Recipe

Another great cold salad dish is shrimp salad. This is more of a summer-oriented dish but I figured I would post it for those of you who are looking for cold salads for your Super Bowl parties. What makes this recipe unique from others is the dressing. The addition of cocktail sauce gives the dressing a very unique flavor. The sauce is a combination of mayo, ranch, and cocktail sauce. The green onions and chopped bell pepper add a nice crunch to the salad. I am kind of disappointed that you can’t see any shrimp in the picture. This is mainly because I used very small salad shrimp. For this recipe, you can use either medium, small or salad shrimp. The pasta can be whatever you like a spiral, seashell, etc. If you are looking for a great tasting shrimp salad, give this one a try. Enjoy.

    I made this today for lunch and it came out great! I didn’t use any shrimps, but the rest of the salad was awesome. 😀

    I started to make this salad last friday. I started my water boiling for the pasta, made my own cocktail sauce, and I opened my salad shrimp to rinse them off and they weren’t deveined and they had the worst smell to them so I had to throw them away :-(.. Next time they are on sale I will be buying a different brand so I can try this, it looks soooo good!!
