Shrimp Salad

Although I never knew my Grandma, we have recipes that were passed down to her children.

    This was one of the recipes she was known for. It's nice to have her recipes, because 
even though she is no longer with us, it brings the memories back for everyone and I can feel a little closer to her.


1 pkg. little frozen shrimp or crab pieces.
1 c. finely chopped celery
2 c. frozen peas
1/3 c. diced Green olives (optional)
 Medium Chopped onion
7 oz. Shell macaroni shells, cooked
2 c.  Mild Cheddar cheese diced or shredded


Western Dressing Ingredients

Mix together in medium bowl:
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. vinegar
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 c. mayonnaise
1 med. onion, chopped
1/4 c. ketchup
     1/4 tsp. salt       

STEP 1: Boil the noodles until tender and drain.

STEP 2: Then pour noodles into large bowl.

STEP 3: Take the colander and rinse shrimp in cold water.

STEP 4: Dice and chop the celery, shrimp, onion, and green olives.

STEP 5: Pour the western dressing into the bowl of noodles.

STEP 6: Add vegetables with dressing and noodles.

STEP 7: Then add shrimp and peas.

STEP 8: Last of all, throw cheese into the bowl.

STEP 9: Make sure it's all mixed together well.

Hope you Enjoy!!!
