Sue, I have been making this recipe for about 6 months now. I have been meaning to rate it but just kept forgetting. I can never thank you enough. This recipe is out of this world. I make a double batch at least twice a week. Do you have anymore like this? I also want to share this with you, my parrot named Hercules, loves this dish. He knows what I am making from the very start. After that, anytime I get the container from the fridge, he goes bananas. He just can't wait till he gets a piece. I bought special bowls to store it in and a medium size chopper. I can never thank you enough for this great recipe. Thank you, thank you and thank you over and over again.

I made this dish - it was very bland and tasteless. Will never make it again.

WOW! Easy - great - different and GONE! Made it for a family get together - and it was a hit! I opted to use only the imitation crabmeat. Will make it often!

This is hands down one of the BEST seafood salad recipes! Loved it! When I prepared mine, I omitted the onions. But next time I will add chopped celery to give it that 'crunch'. The French dressing combined with dressing and milk really gives this salad a 'bang'. I highly reccommend you try this recipe. You won't be disappointed!

Husband liked it! My daughter even ate some of it. I thought it was a bit sweet so I might cut down on the sugar next time. I will also cut down on the recipe; made way too much for my family.

This recipe was a hit, particularly with my son who ate most of it. I'll make it again.

I needed to make some changes and was a bit sad that the seafood broke up so much but overall I liked this dish. It would probably be better with fresh seafood and possibly even with imitation crab meat. I added cayenne, vinegar, and lemon juice along with a few other spices to liven it up a bit. I forgot the milk and also added green peppers and hard boiled eggs. Thanks for the easy recipe.

This was a good recipe. Very tasty. I added scallions and celery for some added flavor and crunch. Really good.
