I was asked to make a seafood salad and found this recipe. I don't care for imitation crab, but I know it is commonly used in seafood salad, so I figured the recipe would be fine. I don't care for lots of celery in salads, or large pieces, so I diced it quite small. Based on other reviews to add seasonings, I left out the black pepper because I don't care for it, but added a couple pinches of celery salt and paprika. I also adjusted the mayo at the end, as suggested, adding about another 1/3 of a cup or so. I liked everything about the salad such as the: dressing, pasta, and peas. But, I couldn't get past the imitation crab in its flavor, texture, or aroma. Everyone who tried it though, seemed to really like it, and it all got eaten. So, it might just be me that does not care for imitation crab meat? Because, I liked everything else about the salad, I might one day try this with cooked crawfish or chunk crab meat, which I like.
