This is delicious! Thanks for sharing. I used shrimp, bay scallops, and some fake crabmeat. Also added a cup or so of diced cucumber, which complimented the other flavors. Thanks again!

I'm writing to say thank you for a recipe that I prepare once a month or so. Everyone I serve it too loves it. I use "snow legs" in the making and I don't skimp. I like to add dried dill and a few dashes of cayenne. Delicious.

I used spiral pasta, forgot the peas and substituted garlic and herb Old bay for the regular flavor. Also had to use canned crab and added the zest from the lemon as well as the juice. Considering all the changes made, I started wondering what the original recipe tastes like! What I made is indeed delicious, but I am really missing the peas. Thanks for the recipe, the pasta to sauce proportion is perfect!

I made this....well almost exactly as written. I used imitation crabmeat (12oz) along with a well drained can of tuna. That's the only seafood I had on hand. Subbed some finely diced green pepper for the peas. I know the taste is totally different, but my family doesn't like peas. Every thing else I kept the same. I doubled the dressing ingredients, because pasta is notorious for soaking up any dressing, and it came out yummy. Will surely make again. It's worth the 5 stars, even with my changes, because of the dressing, which is the primary ingredient that makes the whole dish, IMO.

I made this with your rib recipe Linda... This salad was to die for! I used fresh crab and shrimp and did as you said and doubled up on the mayo etc. It turned out so flavorful and yummy! I had an empty bowl left to bring home, so it was a hit will all of us!

Made this last weekend for our annual family croquet tourney, it was a hit. I put some of our local Hood Canal shrimp and crab in it. The only thing I changed, as someone mentioned I added a bit of cajun seasoning and some hard boiled eggs. Many compliments and so yummy, this is a keeper and quite easy to make.

This is such a hit at our barbeques. I used the imitation crab and it was just fine. I found imitation lobster and put 1/2 that along with 1/2 imitation crab. I also added a extra mayo as the pasta absorbs it and just added a teeny bit extra of the other ingredients.
Everyone absolutely loves it! We will be making it every summer for sure. Thanks!

Very good! I was looking for something different from my traditional recipe. I used 16 oz immitation crab meat as that was all the "seafood" I had and subbed miracle whip for the mayo. Excellent recipe. I just may add a little more dressing next time, as pasta generally absorbs. Will definately make again.. and again...

Simple to make and a hit at the pool party! When i first made it i thought it was too spicy. I refrigerated for a few hours to let the flavors meld together and it turned out perfect.
