Excellent taste. Not too oily which most pasta salads are. Left out the broccoli and onions-subbed sour cream for the mayo instead (due to texture issues). You won't regret making this salad and I don't even like black eyed peas that much. Oh also good with fresh sliced avocado as well. Read More

The colors were pretty (I used yellow bell pepper instead of green) but it came out bland. I had to dump a lot of salt on it to enjoy. Maybe some fresh chopped herbs would zest it up. Read More

Very good way to use up left over king crab leg meat. Definitely let it sit in the refrigerator for awhile before serving. I suggest making it earlier in the day if you are serving it for dinner. The flavor is very simple. I served it on top of lettuce that was tossed with balsamic vinaigrette. If you eat it plain you may want to season it up. I sprinkled Emeril s Original essence on top of it when I ate it the next day. Read More

Great salad! I have never thought of putting black-eyed peas in a pasta salad before. Next time I think I will try chicken in it. Thanks for the new wonderful recipe. Read More
