This is a tasty shrimp salad with rice, peas, celery, mayonnaise, and seasonings. This is a delicious shrimp salad, loaded with flavor and hearty enough for a main dish. Serve on a bed of romaine lettuce with sliced tomatoes on the side for a wonderful hot weather meal, or enjoy this salad any time of the year.

Feel free to use the 90 second microwave rice to make this meal even easier!

Shrimp - Rice - Nice!, Member earthandI

This is an easy, colorful and very tasty salad. All the flavors work together wonderfully. I used basmati rice which has a nice nutty flavor. Great for a side dish or main dish.
