This shrimp salad with pasta is super easy to make and also delicious. This low calorie, light recipe is one of my favorite summer salads. I think it has the perfect combination of shrimp, pasta and crisp veggies. I personally like to use fresh shrimp but frozen ones are still pretty good and much faster to prepare if you are in a hurry. It definitely is a good alternative to standard pasta recipe. Enjoy 🙂 – INGREDIENTS-

15-16 shrimp

2 slices lemon

3 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp extra- virgin olive oil

1 tbsp  vinegar

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

6 olives, chopped

Sea salt to taste

1 cloves garlic,minced for dressing if desired.

4 lettuce leaves,washed, drained and cut

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 medium size carrot, cooked, peeled chopped

1 tbsp sesame seed, toasted

3  cup pasta


1 -Cook the shrimp in boiling water with 2 slices lemon, 2-3 minutes, over medium heat until cooked through. Drain and transfer to a plate, let the shrimp cool. Then peel the shrimp ,remove tails and devein, set aside.

2 – Add salt into the water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook, until tender about 10-12 minutes. Drain the pasta and run it under cold water, drain again it then transfer to a large bowl. Or prepare your pasta according to package directions.
