Excellent cold delicious and a taste of Norleans grin
1/2 recipe. Used ruffles pasta, Hidden Valley ranch dressing, canned tuna, and canned peas (thought I had frozen - didn't - not a good substitution). Used #186029 for the cajun seasoning. Nobody likes peppers so I left them out but would have added nice color. Very tasty.
We enjoyed this as a main dish for lunch. I found the amount of crab to be generous and liked the flavors together. The salad was colorful too. I added half of the dressing before chilling & then at serving time added just enough to moisten things so was able to cut back. Made for PAC Fall 09.
Amazing! The sweetness of the crab and peas paired with the saltiness of the olives and the heat of the cajun seasoning makes this one incredible salad! I couldn't find the Lighthouse Garden Ranch so I used Hidden Valley and left out the bell pepper. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe, Dian! **Made for Fall PAC 2009**
