Here's a really yummy old fashioned macaroni salad recipe. Just add the amount of cooked baby cocktail shrimp you would like. Personally I would use about 3/4 cup cocktail size shrimp for this amount of pasta or 1/2 cup chopped larger shrimp.

4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 lb. elbow macaroni
2 large ribs celery, including leaves, chopped
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, 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 and toss to coat, cover and refrigerate for at least two hours to let the flavors meld.

I make one and all I add is diced cucumber, diced carrots, diced onion, Old Bay seasoning, two cans of shrimp and olive oil mayonnaise, and of course elbow macaroni or shells. Mix well. I think it is pretty good and so does everyone else who tries it. Enjoy!
