Easy Seashell Krab Salad

Easy Seashell Krab Salad created by GaylaJ

This pasta salad is so easy to make. Very little chopping, if you use prepackaged shredded cabbage coleslaw mix. Inexpensive, too! If you don't like curry powder, use paprika in place of it. :)

    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!
