I mixed in some (chilled) pasta into this salad and it made a whole meal. Delicious!

Interesting combination. I've never had shrimp in egg salad before. After tasting, before serving, I did add just a tad bit of salt. :)

What a fabulous idea for egg salad. Egg salad is sometimes, well just too eggy and this was a welcome variation. We had a bunch of leftover shrimp from a party last night, and I made this salad for lunch today. A wonderful salad for a summer day. Made as directed; but after a taste test, I added a bit of kosher salt and black pepper.
