My mom used to make a macaroni salad very similar to this. I've beed looking for a recipe like it. I made it exaclty to the recipe & it was very good! Thanks!
I tried this recipe for a family/friends get-together. I was sooooo embarassed. I didn't care for it. No taste, very bland. Couldn't give it no stars, so gave it one.
Have made it a few times because it was a big hit with the hubby. One thing I changed was amount of crab-I doubled it and used imi crab.
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!
Very good! Everyone liked it.
I halved this recipe which still made way to much.This was terrible.There is just no flavor to this at all.What a waste.My son the seafood lover ate what he could but it did not get finished.
