      This is my aunties shrimp & pasta salad recipe, I save time by purchasing the cooked frozen shrimp and allowing them to thaw in a sink full of cold water while the pasta cooks. It’s one of my favorites to serve at potluck functions because the crisp veggies really complement the delicious shrimp.

      1 lb. small shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cooked
      8 ounces elbow macaroni pasta, cooked and rinsed in cold water
      ¼ cup chopped green onion
      1 green bell pepper, diced
      2 cups diced celery
      1 cup frozen peas, thawed
      1 cup mayonnaise
      1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
      1 tablespoon white vinegar
      1 teaspoon sugar
      2 tablespoons fresh minced dill
      ½ teaspoon salt
      ¼ teaspoon pepper

      In a large bowl, combine shrimp, pasta, green onion, bell pepper, celery, and peas.

      In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, dill, salt, and pepper.

      Pour dressing over pasta mixture and toss until completely coated.

      Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
