Shrimp and Old Bay Macaroni Salad
Seafood lovers will fight over this flavorful twist on macaroni salad. Add any cooked seafood you'd like.
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1½ tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 8 ounces elbow pasta (half a box) slightly undercooked
- ½ cup diced fresh cucumber
- ½ cup diced red bell pepper
- ½ cup diced red onion
- 1 cup cooked mini shrimp
Make the dressing. Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, salt, black pepper, and Old Bay in a small mixing bowl.
Add the pasta, veggies, and shrimp. Place the cooked, cooled pasta in a large mixing bowl and pour the dressing on top. Add the veggies and shrimp and stir well.
Chill. Let the macaroni chill for at least 2 hours. Serve cold.
I cook the macaroni for 1 minute less than the box recommends.
You can find mini-cooked shrimp in the freezer section. If you can't find them, just chop up regular-sized shrimp.
