Shrimp Pasta Salad

12shrimp9astaThis makes a great cold salad, something a little different to add to the menu.

What Ingredients You Need

2 cups small shell pasta, cooked
1 1/2 pounds cooked shelled shrimp, halved
1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped black olives
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Cook pasta in boiling salted water as directed on package. Rinse under cold water. Drain. In a large bowl, toss pasta in with shrimp, celery, green and red bell peppers, cucumber, olives and red onion. Mix mayo and vinegar. Pour over pasta mixture and mix well. Cover. Refrigerate 2 hours. Just before serving, sprinkle with chopped parsley and reserved shrimp.
