Reviews for Chilled Shrimp Pasta Salad
"Delicious!!! Since I am a WW I lightened it up with lite sour cream and lite mayo. I figured only 6 pts a serving so makes an awesome lunch."
"This was delicious! Family loved it, even the grand kids ate it."
"Took to potluck. Lots of good comments."
"Delicious & refreshing! I used green onion instead of the grated onion. Also used less horseradish because it was a tad strong. But I will definitely make this again! Perfect for a hot summer night! Also skipped the red lettuce."
"This salad is delicious! It's perfect for dinner on hot summer nights. I was wary of the horseradish sauce at first, but it added a really nice flavor to the dressing without making it too hot. I used small pacific salad shrimp, and I skipped the red lettuce leaves. I'll be making this quite a few more times this summer!"
"We all loved this pasta salad. Everyone went back for seconds, and thirds! Delicious. I did not have seasoned salt, so I used garlic salt. The dressing turned out so tasty, that we all dipped cucumbers into it as I was boiling the pasta! I think I'll start using the dressing as a vegetable dip! I will definitely make this again! Thanks so much!"
"This salad is delicious! I wasn't sure about the horseradish but I loved the flavor of this. Will definitely be making this again!"
"Love this recipe--so easy and tasty. The horseradish and seasoned salt provide a unique flavor. I used sliced green onions instead of grated onion and reduced sour cream to 1/4 cup and increased mayo to 3/4 cup. This will be a go-to summer salad at our house!"
