A cool seafood salad for those hot summer days. It's a real treat for potlucks. Use your favorite pasta. Chopped celery or Vidalia onion may be added if desired.

  • To make dressing, stir together mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice, and sugar. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika.

I cut this back to three servings as no one else likes sea food salad. I didn't have salad shrimp so I used large raw shrimp that I cute into smaller pieces and and cooked in a skillet with Earth Balance and fresh lemon juice. For the crab I used Johan it's what I had. I used farfalle pasta as it makes a prettier presentation. The only thing wrong with this recipe is that it lacks flavour it needs something bright to lift the ingredients to the next level.

Despite mixed reviews I tried it and I'm glad we did! My husband had 3 helpings. I used bowtie pasta and imitation crab (double the amount). Otherwise I followed everything and it was great. It did make a lot and most of my extended family doesn't eat seafood but that was the only downside! Read More
