Italian Pasta Salad with Shrimp


Here is a great salad for your Fourth of July celebration. I always look forward to the fresh garden vegetables in the summer. Italian Pasta Salad with Shrimp is a great way to use some of those fresh vegetables. If you don’t want to use shrimp, just leave it out. You can get everything prepped and then mix it together a few hours before you are ready to serve it. I have included my link for homemade Italian Salad Dressing Mix below but any Italian Dressing will work.

Italian Dressing:





Gently toss all of the ingredients into a large bowl until combined.

Refrigerate for at least a few hours and until cold, then serve.
