Zingy Macaroni Salad Recipe

I am searching for recipe to put on Dreamfield pasta to make a macaroni salad. I used to like my mom's, followed her recipe and found it bland. I want to make it with a bit more zing and nothing I've added seems to perk it up. Thanks so much in advance.

My mom always added some horseradish when she wanted to put a little zip in the mac salad or cole slaw.

Macaroni Shrimp Salad

4 cups cooked macaroni

1 bunch green onions chopped

1 red bell pepper diced

3 stalks celery diced

1 small jar marinated artichokes with juice, chopped bite size

1/2 cup sliced stuffed green olives

2 cups small frozen cooked shrimp, thawed and squeezed of excess liquid

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

1/2 cup mayo

1 tbs horseradish

juice of 1 lime

Mix all together and chill. This is good served on a bed of lettuce with hard boiled egg slices, cucumber slices, tomato slices, etc. and serve with a slice of garlic bread. A good dinner for summer.

This is a recipe that I invented. I had a shrimp salad in a restaurant that was very bland. I told my husband that I could make a better one and this is the result.
