Easy Macaroni Salad With Shrimp

This is my own recipe and the celery seed and the shrimp blend perfectly. Only 5 ingredients and easy to make. The longer it sits, the more flavorful it becomes, I like to make mine the night before we are going to eat it. Also great served on crackers as an appetizer.


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water until cool.
  2. Mix all ingredients.
  3. Chill for 4 hours.
  4. Note: Add more mayonnaise if needed to coat ingredients evenly.

I also added about 1/4 C of celery, green onions, and sliced black olives. I also added 2 eggs and used sweet pickle relish.

Great recipe, my family really enjoyed it. I did add celery & onions. Let it chill overnight to bring the flavours together. Will be making this often & leaving it in the frig. For late dinners. Thank you Dawnab!

This is a good basic salad. I just couldn't leave it alone, though. I added diced red onion and celery along with sliced black olives, chunked imitation crab and minced fresh parsley. I also mistakenly used celery salt instead of the celery seeds. After sitting overnight, all the flavors blended well and made a great salad. This was my contribution to the salad bar at a community event. The bowl was cleaned quickly.
