  • 1 Pound Rotini Pasta
  • 1 Pound Cooked Thawed Shrimp
  • 1 Pound Smoked Sausage
  • 1 Cup Celery Diced
  • 1 Cup Bell Pepper Diced
  • 1 Cup Corn Kernels
  • 1/2 Cup Green Onion Sliced
  • 2 Cups Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon Hot Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper To Taste


  • Cook the rotini according to package directions. Drain in a colander, then run under cold water until pasta is chilled.
  • While the pasta is cooking, slice the smoked sausage into rounds, then cut each round in half.
  • Add the smoked sausage, shrimp, celery, bell pepper, corn, and green onion to a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, and hot sauce. Taste the mayonnaise mixture and add salt and pepper as desired.
  • Add the cooked and rinsed pasta to the shrimp mixture and stir.
  • Pour over the dressing and stir until everything is well coated.
  • Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.


NOTE:  I use Cholula brand hot sauce, it adds flavor, but isn't too spicy.  
NOTE:  I use Tony Cachere Creole, or, Slap Ya Mama brand Cajun seasoning.  You can find either at almost any grocery store with the spices.
NOTE:  For best flavor, please chill for one hour.  Once assembled, this salad should be eaten within 2 days.
NOTE:  This salad serves generally 10-12 as a side.  You can double or triple the recipe for a large crowd.
