Psst. The secret is in the dressing. A richly textured and multi-colored salad, this recipe includes a perfect blend of shrimp, pasta and crisp summer veggies, but it is the light and delicious OLD BAY®/Italian dressing that lingers on the palate.
2 cups small shell pasta uncooked
1 1/2 pounds cooked shrimp halved
1 cup celery thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper finely chopped
1/2 small red onion finely chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
Cook pasta in boiling salted water as directed on package. Rinse under cold water. Drain.
In a large bowl toss pasta in with shrimp celery green and red bell peppers and red onion.
