Introduction

This salad is a great, and not to mention quick, side dish at any party or barbeque. Since the salad is best served cold, it's great to eat on a hot, summer day! This salad is also great as the main course. This salad is a great, and not to mention quick, side dish at any party or barbeque.

Ingredients

    Taboule Salad (Store bought or home made)
    Shrimp
    Any kind of Pasta
    Lemon Juice

Directions

First, if shrimp is frozen, put them into a cold bowl of water to thaw, then drain the shrimp of water and take the tails off. If they were bought fresh keep them chilled while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Begin by boiling the pasta (any kind will do, but I prefer bow tie pasta or ziti). Once the pasta is cooked all the way through, drain it and immediately run it under cold water.

In a separate dish, add the shrimp and taboule salad together. Then begin to add in the pasta, mixing as you combine the ingredients. Once the salad is mixed, add the lemon juice until you feel like all of the pasta has some wonderful flavor.

Chill the salad, and you are ready to serve!


Helpful Tips:
1. Make sure to cook the pasta all the way through, because once it hits the cold water it will stop cooking, unlike in a hot pasta dish where the pasta will keep cooking as you add heated sauce.

2. Some people like more flavor than others, so feel free to add more taboule or lemon juice to the salad, depending on what your taste is. Both the taboule and lemon juice are diet friendly, so feel free to add more flavor!

3. This recipe also tastes great with diced or shredded chicken.

4. Feel free to add in more veggies! Cucumbers, more tomatoes, and red peppers would also add some flavor to the recipe and are good cold.

5. I make this recipe with whole wheat pasta, and it tastes great. Try it if you haven't already! It's a pretty great way of adding more nutrition to your diet without sacrificing flavor.
