Here's recipe from a booklet called "An Adventure in International Cooking" that my Mom helped compile for 4-H in Madison County (New York) back in the early 1970s. It was submitted by Awilda Heredia.

- 8 ounces crushed pineapple
- 16 ounces sweet peas, drained
- 1 1⁄2 cups mayonnaise
- salt, to taste
- 13 green olives, to garnish
- Peel and cut potatoes in cubes.
- In a large kettle, cover potatoes with water, add the salt and bring the potatoes to a boil.
- Cook until potatoes are tender; drain and cool.
- Chop shrimp and pimentos into small pieces.
- In a large salad bowl, combine cooled potatoes, shrimp, pimentos, crushed pineapple, peas, mayonnaise, and salt (to taste).
