Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water to cool. Transfer to a large bowl, and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the pasta and stir to coat. Add the crab, shrimp, tomatoes, cucumber, black olives and bell pepper; mix gently to coat with the dressing. Taste, and adjust seasoning if desired. If the pasta is too dry, mix in more mayonnaise.

As I don't like canned shrimp, I made this with frozen salad shrimp; I also thought the tiny canned type would be lost in the salad. Although Husband really enjoyed it, he said he thought the shrimp could have been larger - he didn't really notice them. Other than that, this isn't bad at all. It looks pretty too. Thanks!

I thought this was only okay. I would definately use real shrimp next time. The tiny shrimp just seemed to get lost in the shuffle. I realize that the dressing was vinegar based, but it was a little too much for my taste.

I've made this several times and it is a favorite of my family and coworkers. I use more crab meat and shrimp and either a green or red pepper. It is very savory and excellent after the flavors incorporate overnight.

We had a package of this pasta and a can of crab meat and needed a good recipe for pasta salad. I made this for my wife, substituting some red onion for the green peppers, and she absolutely loves it. It's a keeper! Thanks.

Excellent salad! The only change I made was using salad shrimp instead of canned. Make ahead of time and let the flavors mingle in the frige. I'll make this one again and again.

Very bland and tasted like vinegar. I will not make this again.
