Shrimp 'n Shells Salad

Shrimp 'n Shells Salad

1 box small shells, cooked, drained & cooled
1 pound medium shrimp
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped black olives
(plus 1/4 c. SLICED for presentation)
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
1 cup mayo
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup catsup
Cajun Boil blend
Chili sauce to taste (1-2 TBL.)

Prepare shrimp by boiling 3 quarts water, then adding the Shrimp boil.
Boil a minute or so, then add shrimp and cook till pink. Drain shrimp and allow to cool.
Peel shrimp and chop, not too finely, reserving
8 - 10 shrimps whole for presentation.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients.
Using the remainder of the ingredients whisk together to make a
dressing. Mix in with other ingredients. Allow to marinate in
fridge a couple of hours for flavors to blend.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Reminds me of my mother, she used the smallest shells she could find so the shrimp would look bigger and she sliced down through the middle of each so it looked like she had twice as much.
Gotta love them depression gals! I think we will give this a try for lunch on Friday.
