How’s your Summer going?! Our Summer has been so fun so far and I hate to admit it’s half way over (say it isn’t so!). Time is going too fast for me right now. This last week was packed, remind me to tell you about the time I risked my life in a human slingshot (we’re crazy!)
Yesterday I got together with the moms and cousins on my side. We met at a local splash pad. I love it when we get together, because the kids play their heads off and the moms get to chat and eat! My mom brought this alphabet macaroni shrimp salad that we all love. It’s one of our favorites in the Summer.
It’s such a great salad for Summer BBQs and picnic. It really is a meal in itself. This recipe comes from my mom’s good friend Pam York (thank you Pam! We all love it!)
Alphabet macaroni shrimp salad
- 1 small package of mini alphabet macaroni
- 4 hard-boiled eggs chopped small
- 2 cans shrimp rinsed and drained
- 3 green onions diced fine
- ¼ cup green bell pepper finely diced
- mayonnaise -added in desired consistency
- salt and pepper
- *Sprinkle top with a little Paprika
Following the directions on the package of mini alphabet macaroni, bring the water to a boil in a medium-large pot. Add 1 tsp. salt to the water and add the macaroni. Cook until tender, just a little al dente (about 12 minutes). Drain excess water. Stir the cooked and cooled macaroni, shrimp, diced veggies and eggs together. Add mayonnaise to your liking. Add salt and pepper. Move to the serving bowl and sprinkle lightly with paprika.
