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.
