Bubba-Gump Shrimp Pasta Salad

We were invited to my Brother's home for Father's Day and my Grand-Niece's birthday celebration. Since my Sister in Law does most of the cooking, I like to bring something from my kitchen to round out the menu.

This unique pasta salad is a family favorite. I get requests for it before just about every family get together.
