What a find! I had a little boiled shrimp and some cocktail sauce left over from Easter dinner, as well as the remnants of a veggie tray with the accompanying dip. This recipe made it possible to 'recycle' everything in one delicious dish! I didn't bother chopping fresh parsley since the ranch dressing already had a ton in it, but I did slice a couple of celery sticks just to use them up. We thought the little bit of crunch added nice texture. I had made the cocktail sauce with a very generous amount of horseradish, and I agree with another reviewer that it really enhanced the flavor of this salad. Thanks for turning our leftovers into a lovely meal, Tootsie!

I reduced the amount of pasta by half. Also, I added 1 cup chopped spinach and added 1 tbsp lemon zest. I also used a green pepper instead of red. YUM. My husband is thrilled to have this is the fridge to snack on and/or have for lunch.
