Pasta Shrimp Salad

My own creation! I think it's a refreshing salad with a new twist - not the usual shrimp salad.


  • 1 lb. medium size shell pasta
  • Advertisement

  • 1 lb. cooked shrimp
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped (or more - I prefer the red onion!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas, rinsed to thaw
  • seeds from 1 pomegranate
  • 1/2 to 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 bottle Peppercorn Ranch Dressing
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Cook pasta and chill. Chop all veggies, rinse frozen peas, and seed 1 pomegranate. Mix pasta with cold cooked shrimp, add veggies and seeds. Mix mayonnaise with some of the Peppercorn Ranch dressing and add to salad ingredients. Add more dressing if you feel it's needed.

This is a wonderful salad for a luncheon and especially attractive on a bed of leaf lettuce or any other greens of your choice. The seeds add another dimension to the salad. I made this salad for a shower just last week and the ladies loved it!

Oohh! That sounds yummy. I make something similar but the idea of adding the pomegranate seeds is something I will try next time. I don't like celery so I never put it in and pomegranate will give it the crunch it needs. I also add crab meat to my salad.
