Easy pasta salad using surimi (imitation) crab, pasta and poppy seed dressing. Pasta shells or gemelli will work, but rotelli is easy to pick up with the crab and I like the colorful pasta. If you only have a sweet poppy seed dressing, add some red wine vinegar or lime juice to give it some tartness.
Spinach and strawberries what an odd combination for a recipe. That is what I thought before trying this the first time. Now I get many requests to bring this for dinner parties. The raspberry wine vinegar adds a marvelous taste, and compliments the first two ingredients. This salad is very eye pleasing in crystal.
This is a light, refreshing salad. Perfect for lunch or to start off a meal. This is a scaled down version of the salad that will be served at our daughter's wedding. The caterer was generous enough to provide us with the recipe. Note: Cooking time is chilling time for the dressing.
This recipe has been in my family since I can remember. Rumor has it it was my grandma's (Dad's mom) recipe but Grandma (Mom's mom) says it is her recipe. The thing is it is absolutely delicious! I make it all year round but this is my signature thanksgiving side dish. Goes well with my puertorican apple BBQ turkey.
