"Simple yet very pretty side dish. Add in options include drained, chopped water chestnuts, peppers (spicy), flavored mayo, or any veggie that will complement it."

cooked small shrimp
frozen petite peas, thawed
black olives, chopped
diced sweet onion
salt and pepper to taste
mayonnaise, or as needed
I wasn't a fan of this recipe at all. There were too many things going, too many flavors or something. I won't make it again, but if you're going to try it, maybe use less onion.
It was a pretty side dish though!
I made this without the shrimp, varying the amounts of listed ingredients. Wonderful taste and color!
I can see this served at a summer luncheon. I omitted the mayonnaise, mostly because I forgot it, but honestly, I don't think it is needed. I also substituted diced red pepper in place of the black olives to give it some color contrast. The biggest surprise to me was the peas. I wasn't sure how well I would like them, but they are a nice addition. This will be added to my summer repertoire. Thanks for sharing!
