Italian Shrimp and Pasta Salad Recipe

I needed a good side dish to go with chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday and I decided on this Shrimp and Pasta Salad Recipe. It has a lot of nice color with a delicious combination of salad dressing and vegetables. I think this recipe would also work out great for a pot luck or social get together. This Shrimp and Pasta Salad is a very simple recipe with very little prep time. Just be sure to allow enough time for the salad to sit and blend in the flavors. Enjoy
