This recipe is wonderful! I also make this with small seashell pasta and small salad shrimp. I recommend substituting sour cream for the milk as well. Thanks for the great recipe!
Don't waste your time, or shrimp. Has no flavor! Very bland, threw most of it away. Will not make again.
I took this recipe, when we went camping
w/ friends and everyone loved it!! I did
add a carrot (shredded) & 1 1/2 teaspoons of
Bayou Cajun Seafood seasoning! I did take
the others advice and replaced the milk w/
sour cream. Because I was taking this on a
camping trip and did not want it to dry out,
I did put in 2 Tablespoons of milk! This was
very flavorfull!! Oh, I did replace the 3
cups elbow macaroni with: 2 cups shell macaroni.
I made this dish for my coworkers and everyone raved over it. I decreased the milk and added sour cream for a thicker dressing and increased the cocktail sauce to give it even more flavor and color. It was a big hit!
I loved this recipe and made it for the first time for a group if friends. I was worried that 6 servings would not be enough so I doubled it. I had so much food I seriously thought about mixing it in the bathtub! The orginal recipe in my opinion will probably serve more like 10 or 12 people. But it is delicious.
This was good ,but next time I make it I will omit the milk & add more dill weed & cocktail sauce. thank you kkmb
At first when I tryed this recipe it was bland but of course I didn't let it marinate...so once it marinates its better but I swear the shrimp and crab meat needs to marinate alone with the seasonings then mix, before I try any recipe I read the reviews and I am only assuming the person with the lowest ratings should have let the seasoning all marinate together over night if the time allows.
This is the best macaroni salad Ive had yet! The mint, the dill, the onion...even the touch of sugar all blends together in your mouth! Wonderful!
