brandalla - did you mean you use a pound and one/half of cooked shrimp?? I like your idea of using the dry Ranch dressing seasoning, but not the full bottle of the wet stuff. Isn't the shrimp virtually swimming again by then?? I also use red onion - has more kick than Vidalia and/or Spanish - and cukes. Rarely use tomatoes in this kind of salad because pasta salad gets better by the day but tomatoes "spoil" faster than the rest of the stuff in a pasta salad. I will probably keep using my favorite pasta: angel hair. The only pasta I really like is the thinnest possible - otherwise, it's toooo much pasta, and I'd rather be chomping down on other stuff!

Ummmm WHERE are you getting ranch dressing and onion for this recipe??? It's Shrimp macaroni salad!!!!

Mine is much better ! I call it summer shrimp pasta salad- I use a pound half of cooker shrimp-cut in pieces- a red onion (finely minced) and grape tomatoes and cucumbers (cut in bite size pieces) and the secret is....Hidden Valley Salad Dressing , a big bottle and one dry pkg mixed with a bit of mayo and lemon juice and a touch season salt and black pepper and I use shell pasta. You wont believe what a big hit this is !!!(even better if made the day before and add more Hidden Valley salad dressing and stir before serving !)

Just made this for dinner tonight and it really taste great..thanks.
