Seafood Salad



Its summer and you can never have enough cold salad recipes.  Here is the one recipe for seafood salad I have been meaning to post for a while.  This salad is perfect for cook-outs, picnics, and parties.  You can use your choice of pre-cooked cold seafood (I went with shrimp).  Imitation crab or lobster goes great in this salad as well.  Some of the ingredients include bacon, avocados, cheddar cheese, and tomatoes.  What I really like about this recipe is red pepper flakes give the salad a nice kick.  You can also add additional ingredients such a green onions if you choose.

1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta

¼ lb bacon (cooked and crumbled)

1lb cooking shrimp (peeled and deveined with tails removed)

2 avocados (peeled, pitted, and diced)

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup mayonnaise ¼ cup lemon juice

2 tomatoes (diced)

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

4 cups shredded lettuce


1.  Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook penne pasta according to package directions.  Rinse under cold water to cool. 

2.  While pasta is cooking you can do the prep work, such a dicing tomatoes and avocados.

3.  In a large bowl gently toss together pasta, bacon, shrimp, avocados, cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, tomatoes and red pepper flakes. Serve over lettuce. (Makes 6 servings)
