Shrimp and macaroni salad is  my recipe of the day with the blogging group “From Our Dinner Table”. We  meet weekly to post on various food topics. This week we are sharing recipes for favorite salads.

Pasta salad is always a favorite of mine, as there are so many  ways to prepare them.

This take on the Southern staple included shrimp for an interesting variation. I think  it makes a perfect side for  a fish fry or  even something like salmon on the grill.

While being perfectly tasty as part of a picnic, be sure to keep the portions refrigerated for food safety since this contains  mayonnaise. We like Duke’s mayo but use whatever you like including Miracle Whip.

People are going to use  what they like anyway.
