Pasta Salad with Shrimp

A Thousand Island-type dressing adds some zip to this pasta and shrimp salad. My family prefers it to oil-based salad dressings. —Mrs. Herbert Waalkens, Albert Lea, Minnesota

    I added chopped sweet pickles, fresh dill, and celery leaves and left out onions for the raw onion haters in my family for 4 of July cookout. It was delicious. Next time I might try adding horseradish.

    I took the advice of another reviewer, increasing the amount of the dressing. We all enjoyed it. The shrimp I had were a larger size, so I just cut them in half.

    I gave it a 3/5 because the dressing was a little sparse for my family's taste, but after adding another 1/2 c. of mayo, 2T. chili sauce and another T. of dill pickle, I would give it 4 or 5 stars.
