recipe: looking for: cold rice salad dish with shrimp, cashews

piper101October 24, 2007

I was at a memorial service and a church lady had made this cold salad that had: Rice, whole shrimp, whole cashews, celery and green pepper and it was colored yellow. I've looked all over and nothing really comes close. It served cold and was fantastic. If anyone knows of this recipe, the name etc. let me know. It's the little things like spices, the binder be it mayo, sour cream or I don't know that I just couldn't figure out. Unfortunately whomever made it wasn't there. Thank you.
