READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Cinnamom in Illinois

Yummy and well suited for summer entertaining. The colors make the dish pretty, but it's healthy and filling, too. Made with fat-free mayo, you can't go wrong.

This was wonderful and easy! I didn't have any salad shrimp...somehow they I did cook up some frozen shrimp cut them in good chunks and sprinkled some roasted red pepper and garlic seasoning on them. I then tossed them in the salad and made as directed. Served with a half of a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch. Thank you! Made for Spring PAC 09.
