MD made this for a potluck and bbq. Excellent flavors -- the shrimp was perfect with the freshness of the peppers, olives and celery and the macaroni brought it all together when coated with the dressing. MD introduced me to the bottled dressing which can be used as a quick and easy substitute for a dijon mustard/white wine vinegar dressing. Delicious!
This is a great summer salad! I had the pleasure of the chef make it during our vacation together during the 4th of July. It was a perfect accompanient to Tri-Tip and Chicken that we BBQ. This made a lot, and was enjoyed by all for a couple of days. I love the black olives, bell peppers and all the flavors mingled perfectly. The parmesan was a perfect topper....and the dressing just made it tastes great! MD even gave me her spices "Salad Supreme" as we couldn't find the Salad Elegance while shopping... just in case I couldn't find it at home. YUM! Thanks for making and sharing another great recipe. I'm bummed I didn't get a photo of this one ;) I will next time. ~V
