    A flavorful twist to crab salad. Ingredient amounts can be adjusted to suit individual tastes. I usually add extra celery and olives.

      So I made this as a side to take to a New Orleans themed dinner. Everyone who ate it gave it rave reviews, it really showcases the flavor of the crabmeat without overpowering it. I made it exactly to directions except I didn't use any green olives as I dislike them. My grocery store did not have the rotelle pasta so I used mini bow-tie pasta instead.

      Not having rotelle pasta, bowties were used instead. As the cajun seasoning adds salt and the crab and olives are also salty, be careful about adding the additional salt called for in the recipe. This made a delightful lunch served over chopped romaine.

      I really like this recipe! I am so happy to find a crab salad without a mayo-based dressing. I made as posted except to leave out the olives. I also used about 2 tsps. of the cajun seasoning and over 1 tbsp. of horseradish. The salad is addicting :) It's very easy to make and would be great for a potluck or summer get-together. Thank you for posting a keeper!
