This is a good dish for a picnic, a BBQ, or a pot luck dinner! Since it has to chill anyway, make it the day before and have more free time on your special day.

1 and ¼ cups of elbow macaroni

1 lemon, juiced

¾ cup of celery, chopped

¼ cup of bell pepper, chopped

3 Tablespoons of chopped pimiento

1 and ¼ cups of cheddar cheese, cubed

3 Tablespoons of fresh chives, chopped (or 5 Tablespoons of dried)

¼ cup of fresh parsley, chopped (1 heaping teaspoon of dried)

3 Tablespoons of dried or chopped fresh dill

1 cup of cooked green peas

2 cups of cooked salad shrimp

½ cup of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip

Directions:

Cook the elbow macaroni according to the package directions. Drain well. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir to blend flavors. Cover and chill at least 3 hours or overnight.
