Dorothy's summer shrimp salad
Boil one pound of small pasta in salted water until al dente. I used a bag of funky, small curly pasta things I bought at an Amish market a while back, but any small noodle (i.e. elbows, wheels, ears, etc.) will do. Drain, rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process, and let drain again until all extra water is gone.
Chop the following into small pieces:
- 1 large onion
- 1 large green pepper
- 4-5 stalks of celery
- one jalepeno pepper (not in mom's original recipe, but I wanted to throw a little kick into the salad)
salt and pepper
Mix all in a bowl with enough mayonaise to moisten. Add salt and pepper to taste. I like lots of pepper.
See, I told you it was simple. Excuse me while I go get another bowl.
