"I prepared a similar version of this seafood salad years ago for my daughter's graduation," notes Mary Ann Berquam from her home in Turtle Lake, Wisconsin. "Since then, I've substituted low-fat ingredients, and I still get many requests for the recipe."


  • 1 package (7 ounces) small shell pasta
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 package (5 ounces) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup fat-free French salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine the pasta, celery, shrimp and peas. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
