This recipes was great! I was looking for something that didn't have a cream sauce or cheese and this was wonderful! It was a cold day when I made it so I sauteed the peppers then added the crabmeat and the lime juice and zest. I served this over rice. Everyone in the family loved it and I can't wait to make it in the summer as a salad! Read More

This was pretty good. I left out the mango as my husband doesn't like them. The salad is light in flavor and refreshing. My husband didn't like the salad that much as he has a phobia about eating cold seafood. Oh well I guess I won't be making this again. Read More

This one was great. I was looking for something light and tangy but with a kick. I used less hot pepper and substituted salad shrip(it was on sale). It was great! The recipie doubles nicely and I tripled the lime dressing-just in case. I got RAVE reviews on a hot summer day. Read More

All of the ingredients meshed well together except the cumin. It was too strong and did not go with the citrus flavor of the salad at all!! Read More

Made this recipe twice. Took a few shortcuts - used Del Monte (I think) mango which comes in a jar peeled sliced and stored in it's own juice in the refigerated section of the grocery store. I found this recipe worked best when I made it the day before and let it sit overnight in the frig. The flavors really blend together well that way. This salad was a big hit. I'll be making it again soon. Read More

This salad is incredible. The fresh mango really makes it. I used fresh ginger instead of powdered extra cilantro and a slightly under-ripe mango for extra bite! This would also be excellent without the crabmeat (if you're vegetarian). Yum! Read More

Very good. For a lighter version substitute lettuce and shrimp for the pasta and crabmeat. Read More

This recipe sounded fantastic. However I completely botched it up. I tried to use fresh mango which I have never dealt with before and I had an awful time. I don't know if my mango's were not ripe yet but they were almost impossible to cut and they tasted extremely acidic. In fact the whole recipe once I finished it tasted way too acidic. I tried to salvage it by adding extra honey but it was too late. I had to throw it all out. Read More
