DIRECTIONS

  • Cook shells in plenty of boiling water according to package directions, being careful not to overcook them. Rinse in cold water; set aside. (For advance prep tip, see note at end).
  • Chop all salad ingredients, making sure you have all the pieces quite small so that you can easily stuff the salad into the shells.
  • Make dressing; pour over salad and toss lightly. Add salt and pepper if desired.
  • Stuff salad into cooled shells (now you will understand why you chopped the ingredients into small pieces!).
  • Refrigerate up to 4 hours before serving.
  • Advance preparation tip from a reviewer: "The day before, I cooked the shells to al-dente, rinsed them in cool water, separated them and let them cool. Then, I put them in a ziplock. I chopped everything for the salad part and put it in a ziplock, without the dressingl. The next day, I mixed the dressing into the salad and stuffed the shells. Worked like a dream.".
