Someone here at ThriftyFun was just asking about a macaroni salad with shrimp recipe so thought I would share my favorite with everyone.


  • 1 lb. elbow macaroni
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 2 large ribs celery, including leaves, chopped
  • 3/4 cup cooked baby cocktail shrimp
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise, or more to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 (4 oz) jar pimentos, drained and chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, drain, and rinse with cold water and drain again.

Combine the eggs, celery, shrimp, red onion, and lemon juice in a large serving bowl, add macaroni and stir to combine.

Whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, and pimentos in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper, add to the macaroni mixture, toss to coat, cover and refrigerate for at least two hours to let the flavors meld.

This is one of my favorites. I love shrimp and the combination of ingredients is just great together. Love the Chinese noodles!
