This was delicious!!! I used small pasta shells added one slivered radish, a few peas and a touch of cream to the dressing so it wouldn't set up to much before our lunch (otherwise I followed the instructions). DH loved this and would like to have it as a regular (which is fine with me...I enjoyed it also). Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

i enjoyed this. i did omit all veggies since i had none on hand and wished i didn't put the salt in there. i'm sure w/ the veggies the salt might be needed but i prefered it w/out if i were making it again w/ just the crabs. i made it as sushi and it was delicious.

Liked this a lot. I added extra curry power and some old bay to give it a little more spice. I used the 1/2 c mayo, next time might try substituting half of that for greek yogurt. Thanks for sharing! UPDATE: I made this again and used mostly light mayo and a dollop of light sour cream as well. We also used dreamfields pasta to cut back the carbs even more. This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day.

Was looking for a recipe to fit in a diabetic diet. This is a super meal in one. I used old bay, did not have any curry. I chopped the coleslaw mix really fine with my Ulu because DH says he dosen't like cabbage in a salad. It was fantastic, he loved it. Thanks

I saw the picture on the front page of Zaar and thought it looked wonderful so decided to make it this evening :) I followed the recipe as written other then I used old bay instead of the curry or paprika. I also didn't add the purple onion. I did use 2/3 of mayo as hubby likes lots of mayo. I did think the salad needed more flavor so I ended up adding 1 teaspoon of old bay and then we thought it was great. Will be making more often. Thanks Parsley!

We thought this was good. I followed the directions as directed, but it was kind of bland. I added more garlic,salt and peper. I also added old bay seasoning and onion powder. My kids did enjoy this. I really liked the addition of the cabbage. My kids didn't even know if was in there.Thanks!

I wish I hadn't waited so long to make this salad as it is just delicious. Made it just as written and it was superb.

We really loved this salad and enjoyed it as a light supper. I used small pasta shells, just because that's what I happened to have on hand. Otherwise, I made per recipe. Thanks for posting!
