Healthy Shrimp Pasta Salad

This was Dinner Thursday night.  it was really good!  I got the recipe from Favorite Family Recipes.

This Shrimp Pasta Salad is only 200 cal. per cup and 4 WW points!

This bowl is holding 2 cups.  I had plenty of points left for dinner!

I had a bowl of salad and 1 cup of blackberries which are ZERO points!

Shrimp Pasta Salad
1 lemon
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 TBSP fresh dill
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups uncooked bow tie (farfalle) pasta
1 pound medium shrimp, shelled, deveined and cooked
1 cucumber, sliced
3 carrots, sliced
1 red pepper, chopped in thick chunks
4 green onions with tops, thinly sliced

For the dresing, zest the whole lemon and then juice it.  Combine the zest, lemon juice, mayonaise, sour cream, fresh dill, and salt.  Set aside.

Cook pasta, shrimp, cucumber, carrots, pepper, and green onions.

Pour dressing over salad ingredients and mix well.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but several hours or overnight is best.

I added some celery and I didn't have green onions so I just chopped up some regular onion.  Easy and yummy!
