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 (16 ounce) bag elbow macaroni
- 1 lb baby shrimp
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water until cool.
- Mix all ingredients.
- Chill for 4 hours.
- 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.
