Because of all the snow in the Seattle area we ended up having on Christmas dinner on New Year’s day. The event was worth the wait and we all had a great time.
Mom’s shrimp salad was on the menu and almost everyone liked it. Cousin Charles doesn’t consider fish to be an eatable food so he didn’t even try it. I have similar feelings about melons so I understood.
Mom’s Shrimp Salad
1 pound frozen precooked shrimp – thawed and cut in half
1 – 1/2 cups seashell pasta – cooked and drained
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 Tablespoons minced onion
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
3 Tablespoons vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
dash of hot pepper sauce
Mix the last 5 ingredients together to form a salad dressing. Put everything else in a salad bowl. Then pour the dressing into the bowl and mix well.
Make this salad the night before you serve it so that the flavors have a chance to blend. Stir one more before serving.
