Shrimp Rice Salad Recipe

"I enjoy this salad because it's so easy to prepare," enthuses Joyce Pappert of Mars, Pennsylvania. "It's nice to take luncheons or bridal showers...and it makes a refreshing meal on a hot day. My husband isn't a big fan of seafood, so I often make it with chicken, which is just as tasty."
