Shrimp Remoulade Pasta Salad has a classic New Orleans Remoulade dressing and lots of baby shrimp mixed in. Chopped celery and red bell pepper give the pasta salad a little crunch and horseradish and Tabasco sauce give it some bite.
Pasta Salads are one of my favorite things to make for summer potlucks and picnics and I get easily bored making the same one again and again. I try to really switch it up with different flavor combinations. Some of my favorites: Caesar Pasta Salad, BBQ Ranch Pasta Salad, and Tzatziki Pasta Salad.
The Remoulade Dressing gives the pasta salad tons of flavor. It is made from mayonnaise, creole mustard, ketchup, horseradish, Tabasco sauce, sugar, and creole or cajun seasoning. My favorite Cajun seasoning is Tony Chachere’s.
You can use fresh baby shrimp, or in a pinch I use Chicken of the Sea canned shrimp.
I’ve used pasta shells, but any pasta shape can be used.
